Restoration Help

Hello to all. I inherited a '67 Coupe (289) from a friend who could no longer continue to work on it. Since then, I have undertaken the task (joy) of continuing where he left off. I also have a '89 Mercury Grand Marquis that has tranny problems and is slated to go the yard.
My question is as follows: What can I salvage from the '89 Merc and use on the '67 Mustang?
Any and all ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

About the only thing you could swap is the motor and tranny. If I were you I would pull both the motor and tranny then send the car to the yard. The engine is not necessarily a high performance motor however it should be a roller block and have efi. The tranny I would have fixed and install in the stang since it is an AOD. The overdrive will allow you to run a lower (numerically higher) rear end. The low gears will make stoplight to stoplight really fun while you will still be able to drive on the highway without the high RPM's.
The battery!!!!

(sorry, couldn't resist!)
Thanks for the response. That was in the general area I was heading.
