Unless you have a stockpile to trial fit from, custom built's are gonna be in your future. That is a 'never done' swap.
One way to make things a ton easier is a front motor plate, so you open up a bunch of space on each side of the engine. Maybe also reroute the steering shaft as well with a couple of U-joints.

I would call lemons headers, hedman headers, some of the older header manufacurers and see if they might have made up a set of swap headers for that set up. I can't imagine you are the first to ever put a sbc in one of those and they might still have the prints/notes to make them.

The Mustang II chassis is real similar to the Pinto so you might try headers for a SBC/Pinto swap. I have seen a few of those but never paid attention to what they used for a header. Other than that you will have to go the custom built route. Or better yet put a SBF in it! :lol:

I put a sbc in one for a custmer years ago and had to custom make them. I charge him 1,275.00 mild steal. I bought a weld up kit from Dan at Lemons Headers. The kit comes with u and j bends or you can just buy what you think you might need also.
