That should be a great swap. Make sure you hook up the transmission's throttle cable and you're in business.

No, it will have to be shortened. I also should have mentioned that you'll need a new transmission crossmember. Both National Parts Depot and Mustangs Plus sell them, I believe.

You might want to look over my C4 to AOD swap write up in the technical articles archive:
https://mustangsandmore.com/ubb/DanJonesC4AODswap.html

That one details a swap into a '71 but we also did one into a '69 using an FMX crossmember.

Hi Lyle,
I would be very interested in the frame mounts & the crossmember for the 69 Coupe. You said the parts would be free, thank you let me know how much the shipping is & I will send you a money order or a check for the cost to send them to me.
Thanks, Mike.
PS- Thanks for the info Dan.
