Yes a 302 or 351 will fit in your car.

Re: 302 motor

I believe the three cars he is talking about is the Crown Vic, Grand Marquis, and the Town Car. The engines are more or less the same. You might have to swap some components and brackets for the power steering, alternator, etc, but you should be ok. Motor mounts are probably different too, so you may want to invest in a new set. The power and torque curves may be different from the Mustang, but if you are looking for a budget repair you will be ok. Also remember the Thunderbird, Cougar, and Mark VII will have a 302 under the hood too.

Re: 302 motor

Just a little info the CV, GM, and Town Car do not make any where near the power of a mustang 302. If your looking to get the same power you have now try to get a motor from a Mark VII or another Mustang. The mustang 302 makes over 200 if i am not mistaken around 215-220HP and the CV, GM, and TC only make 160hp and 260TQ.
