Question 63 Comet 4 speed swap to a 65 Mustang. Will it work?

I have a 63 Mercury Comet S 22 4 speed conv. 260 v 8 which although pretty decent I don't care about I have a 65 mustang conv. 3 speed I was thinking of doing a swap to save dollars and have a 4 speed in the Mustang. Does anyone know if this will work?

I don't think so. I know the early Falcons have the shifter WAY farther back than the mustangs, and I suspect a 63 Comet is Falcon-based.

66 coupe 5.0/T5, home-brewed power 4 wheel disc setup, 350hp+, looks like it belongs in 1968

dood, that Comet is getting to be VERY valuable, sell it and buy a 4 speed instead of hacking up a classic

well.....

63 s22's aren't that sought after and i was going to put the 3 speed back in in place of the 4 speed. So a 65 Mustang can have a 3 speed but an s22 can't? I wasn't going to take a torch and cut the car in half or anything dumb. Just felt it wouldn't make much difference which was the 4 spped and which was the 3 speed. You're probably right, i'll look for a 4 or 5 speed for teh 65 Stang. thanks for the imput. Have a good holiday.
