TH350 to TH200r4 Conversion

Hi, newbie here.

I'm researching swapping the TH350 in my 250ci daily driver '74 Nova with a TH200r4. The car has 46K original miles on it.

I don't plan to drag the car but will be looking into some 6=8 upgrades and swapping in a 8.5" 10 bolt 2.73 posi-traction rearend in place of the open 3.08 rear end.

I've read a few articles on line about it and sounds like pretty much a direct swap but wonder if anyone here has done it and how much difficult/unexpected stuff had popped up.

A couple things I wonder about are:
-Can I use the same torque converter?
-Will I have to get a different crossmember?
-Can I use the same column shifter?

Any help or advice is appreciated.
