I’m currently swapping a v6 mustang to a 5.0. I’m looking at buying a full parts car to rip apart rather than buying piece by piece and found a 78 in good shape. Wondering if everything from that gen swaps over to the fox or not?

well, yes and no. The block/heads are the basic small block ford that has been around forever with updates throughout the years so later in the years brought changes like roller cam/lifters amongst other things.
the accessory drive can be made to work but again the later years had a better single belt setup.
So what are your plans?

Better to stick with same year if possible, or at lease the same chassis.

engine will work, but none of the small odds and ends will and you’ll have to seek them out separately.
