Hello,

The bolt pattern is totally different and they wont bolt up. They dont even make an adapter for it. However you could put another transmission that came off a 318/360 engine. You would need to make some modifications for the crossmember so that you can secure the tranny to the frame. Its a lot of work but would be fun to drive!
