Question engine swap

my friend just bought a 51 plymouth crambrook. it's all stock with the original flathead six. he wants to swap the engine and slap in a chevy 350. i know we will have to change the tranny as well as the rearend. is there any major modifications that will have to be made? it looks like we will have to cut part of the inner fender wall because it's kind of narrow. the chassis looks kind of narrow too. will it be too hard to fit the engine in? any help will be greatly apreciated. <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

If you can ,I would try to make my own motor mounts and move the moter up closes to the radiator but not close to hit it. a 350 will fit but you might have to use short valve cover. .. hop this helped..
