Dodge, 318 motor, using an oil pan and oil pickup from a full size truck, exhaust manifolds from the 318 and standard "y" exhaust pipe. Automatic trans. I think you can use part if not all of the existing motor mounts. Seen it, drove it but I did not do the work.

360 and 318 are the same block just different bore and stroke if i remember right if your looking for more power you could make the 360 into a 408 stroker if you really wanted to go wild but the 360 should fit
