Will a late model 5spd trans from a 302 Mustang GT bolt up to a 289 motor in a 65 Ford Fairlane?
I want to replace the 3 spd colum shift trans with a late model 5spd overdrive trans from a Mustang GT, will it bolt up to the 289 motor? or will I need an adaptor?
will the clutch work from the Fairlane? or will I need to use the clutch from the Mustang also?

The 5 speed you ask about is one piece with the bellhousing and the clutch is operated by cable and not the typical Z bar. It will bolt up if it is from a stang with a 302, The 302 is nothing more than a revamped 289. The cylinder heads are the only difference. BUT your driveshaft will noit work because of the length and yoke style so you will have to have a drive shaft made up and your gear shift hole in the floor will have to be moved for the 5 speed if it is the one I am thinking about is a top loader.

THANKS, Retiredfordtech. I don't have the 5spd yet, I'm going to get it from the junk yard , and needed to know if it would work before I spent the time and money. I didn't think about the yoke style difference, now I know to get the drive shaft and the clutch assembly also.
