390 Engine Swap

Hi, guys. This is my first post. I just found this site and Iím hoping to get help with my 63 T-Bird repair.

I recently got this car and the engine is tired. Very tired! I have an opportunity to get a í73 390 engine with low miles that came out of a wrecker. My question isówill the í73 engine go in the í63 bird without major headaches? I canít afford to do a rebuild on my current engine and Iím not concerned with numbers matching originality. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

If the truck motor is a 2 barrel you may need to swap intakes for the linkage to be correct. other than that is should be a straight swap.
