Who can say offhand? you are going to have to physically measure all the mounting points and clearances, bolt holes and fasteners needed. Perhaps at one glance a person could tell, but an island of measurement is where ye be if you're going to take a whack at it offhand.

perhaps there are different mounting faces that have been documented over the years...one would have to do a bit of information gathering. I'm sure they've only got a dozen pattern castings. Clearance of the shift lever---you did not say that the cab was a manual, presumably an automatic, so clutch would have to be fitted..oy the challenges~

Probably. But you will most likely have to create a driver side mount. Any manual transaxle from a Mk I VW (Rabbit, GTI, Jetta, or Cabby) will fit without modification.
