Other way around, the 300 has the bullet proof bottom end with a fully counter-weighted forged crank, meatier rods, and thicker block castings. The 240 is a cast crank, light rods and thin wall cast block.

The 302/351 heads are a race only mod. The never solved, seldom mentioned problem is coolant leakage at the join points. While a race engine will stay dry enough for an afternoon, this isn't something you do on a commuter car.
