302 is far a better motor

Think you might do better asking on the HAMB.

We had a 302 in a '37 Ford pickup years ago, worked great and fit nicely too. Hope this helps.

A big block 360 FE motor will be a tighter squeeze.

I would go with the 302. Kits are available to install. I few mods to the engine and it will be a screamer.
