Mustangs and Cougars are the best fit. If you get into the Fairlane, Galaxie, Torinos and such, you will run into longer tailshafts and different shifter mounting locations.

A T5 is a popular upgrade, with the overdrive gear. Lots of info on the web about swapping those in. Check out modern driveline for easy complete kits.

If you are just replacing a 3 speed with a 4 top loader then it is simple swap out. If you are changing from an auto to a stick, I would go ahead with a T5 swap to get that OD since you are having to get all the associated hardware anyway. Here is a link with some good top loader info:
