Helped a close friend do this with a 67. You will need a front sump 351W oil pan if your 351 doesn't already have it. 289-302 motor mounts. The 289 headers fit and clear if you don't have power steering, the outlets just come out closer to the floor because the motor is taller. (don't know about w/power steering). Better rebuild the C-4 for hi-perf while the motor is out and it is easier to get to it. (we used a small pattern C-6) I don't know if the Vic Jr will clear a stock hood, he had a repro fiberglass 427 scoop hood from Crite's Restoration, we opened the scoop on the underside to fit the air cleaner up into the scoop with the Vic Jr. I was impressed at the quality of the hood- very nice.
