I had a 1960 Dodge Phoenix with a 318 poly V8 which I swapped out for a 1957 392 hemi with no problems except the exhaust system, which of course is normal. I had to make my own exhaust system and bend the carb linkage to fit, but other than that, it dropped right in! The motor mounts were the same, and even the pushbutton tranny connection was the same. Hope this helps even though Chrysler went through alot of changes during those years.
