I have a question for you all. I am wanting to put a 302 into my '67 but I'm not quite sure if everything will line up. I need to know if a c4 tranny will bolt right up to it with no problem and if the old motor mounts will work. It has a 200 inline 6 right now. Any insight/advice would be much appreciated!

Except for the difference in bell housings (5 vs. 6 bolt patterns), I don't think there were any notable external changes up through the 70s. I ran a 68 C4 in my early 289 (originally came with a 5 bolt Bell). I merely swapped my 5 bolt bell onto the tranny. It worked without a problem until I changed to the T5z.
The 302 is very adaptable to the C4s. Just make sure you get all of the parts, including the engine plate.
Might want to think about suspension changes too?

Good Luck with your project

I would not think there would be any issue. My '69 was built as a 390 with a C6. When I bought it, it had a '78 302 with a C4. When I replaced it may years later with a rebuilt '69 302, the same C4 bolted up with no problems.
