YES!!! The 300-6,has the same bell housing,bolt pattern,as the windsor V-8,,so,any small-block trans,,will bolt up,to your engine..I would locate a 82-90 aod,for your swap...You may encounter a drive-shaft issue,but then,plenty of pick ups,like yours,came with the aod-so finding a drive shaft ,,should be no problem..If so,, a custom drive shaft,built,and balanced,doesnt cost that much.....Good Luck!!!
