Anything can fit if you have the resources. It really comes down to money and how much time/effort you are willing to put into it.

Early Hemi is a bolt in---they were put in quite a few of those things in the late 50s.

Most any Mopar engine will go right in there without much fuss

Put a chevy in that Dodge and you're going down hill! Put an early hemi in it and you've got an eye opener!
