Overhaulin with Chip Foose
Last night for the first time I caught a eppisode of Overhaulin with Chip Foose, they stole a guy's 65 Mustang Fastback and Overhauled it, it was a Nice Show and it got me thinking.......
Now I love My 07 PONY, it's just got a V6 in it but I have kept it Immaculate, Showroom Condition and it only has 6,700 miles on it now. Plus I think the 05-09 Body Styles are by far the Nicest looking! My Question, on the Show Overhaulin they swapped out the guy's Motor, Tranny, ect ect, and made it a Beautiful Respectable Mustang, would it be possible to swap out the Motor in My 07 PONY V6 with a (FORD Racing V8 Motor and Tranny)? I was going to buy a Newer V8 Mustang in a couple more years, but I DONT Like the Newer Body Styles, plus My Mustang is still a Brand New Car and insted of Buying a Newer V8 I'd like to keep my Baby and just add another Motor, Tranny and whatever else to it, or WOULD THIS NOT BE POSSIBLE AS THE PRICE TO DO THIS AND ALL THAT'S NEEDED TO CHANGE ON MY MUSTANG NOT JUSTIFY THE OVERHAUL PRICE??
A newer Mustang would cost me $40,000 I figured if I can spend (a rough estimate and it's just a estimate) $10-12 Thousand on the Overhaul then I'd have My Dream Mustang and SAVE Money over a New One.
I would'nt consider the Swap if My Mustang was'nt as Brand New as it is, but it's like a Brand New one still.
If it's possible I dont want some wild Race Car, just a Mustang with some Power. What's your thoughts and what Motor, Tranny and such could I go with to do this that would fit on My V6 PONY? I'd even be Happy with a V8 that comes with the GT's and if it would bolt on My current Tranny and that's all I'd have to do is change Motors than I'd settle for that.
I want to do the Swap for the least money and have a V8 insted of the 6, what to do and rough estimate what would it cost?
