Modular Engine in 1961 to 63

Has anyone successfully installed a Ford Modular engine in one of these T-Birds? Once you stop laughing, I am a new "life-time member" to your group and while I don't currently own a 61 to 63, it is my desire to acquire one. The car is great looking and was looking to see what is possible and what have you guys already attempted.

Thanks for the responses in advance.

Check out Manns Restorations they did a 63 bird. The front suspension needs to be changed to accommodate the wider engine. The Coyote engine does not make a lot of torque down low so with out a 6 speed trans the rear gears need to be around 4:11. It is a lot of work, but has been done. The swap will cost around 50K.
