    Hey Ya'll,

    I have a 1968 Coupe with Inline 6 and a 1982 5.0 GLX.

    I want to do a motor swap and put the 5.0 302 in the '68...? I also want to remove the drivetrain and rear end from the 82 and move it to the 68. Can this happen without putting leaf springs in for the springs on the 82 rear suspension?

    I know I will need to get a longer drive shaft but will moving the entire drivetrain in the 68 actually work?

    Any advice would be great!

    -Thanks

    motor and trans will fit- short of welding spring perches on your 82 rear end or going to a four link style aftermarket rear suspension im not sure you can make the 82 rear stuff work.
