Swapping TH350 for Saginaw 3spd. What do I have to change?

Alright, the tranny I found in the attic a few days ago is a Saginaw 3 speed. I want to install it in place of my stock TH350. I heard that my driveshaft length may be the same, but I'm not sure about that or anything else for that matter. Where would be a good place to find the right parts for the swap? It will be bolted to a Pontiac 455.

Any idea what car the 455 pontiac engine will be in?

You need clutch pedal and linkage, clutch, flywheel , bell housing to name a few parts.

Do you have some parts or none?

Drive shaft may be the simple item to deal with

It's going in a 1975 firebird formula. The Transmission is the only thing I have right now.
