Back to original

I am trying to restore my 82' back to somewhat original condition. When I bought her she was in really awesome condition, as she belonged to an elderly lady. Since I have owned this car, about 10 years, I have put the car thru ****. The body and interior are still in great shape, but the engine has seen better days. It has the 2.3L in it. I have tried to find the same engine from a similar Mustang, but have had no luck. My question is this: What other non-mustang engines will fit the tranny that I have now. If anyone has any advice or ideas then please feel free to share.

Are you sure the 2.3L from that car isnt the same block as what was in the following year Mustangs? If they are the same then they should be pretty easy to find, otherwise i think the Ranger pickup (and a few other Ford's such as the tempo and escort i think) had the same block also.
