Powerglide into a G-body?

Does anyone know about putting a powerglide into a G-body? I have a 1978 Cutlass Calais that has a spent metric tranny, and I can get a 1968 powerglide with a converter for $135. Is this a direct swap, or are there issues with this? Thanks for your input.

The Cutlass has a Chevy 305

The Cutlass has a Chevy 305, and the powerglide is from a nova.

Its a bolt in, you will have to rig a kickdown linkage........and run a vacuum line for the modulator valve.....and play with the shift linkage.

I think you would be happier with a T350...............it bolts in too.

The 'glide will go in the hole, but you will probably have shifter and TV linkage issues unless you got ALLLLL of that stuff from the donor car.
Probably easier and cheaper to get a street/strip T350...
