There is an adapter to mate the early hemi with a Chevy transmission.
If you have enough money, you can do about anything.
My problem is that I don't have the money.

Getting a little more done.
I got the front timing cover and found out that the fan is going to be too low. I do have enough room between the fan and the radiator though. That was my main concern there. I ordered a Zips riser and it should be here today. Water pump came in yesterday.
I also ordered the transmission adapter. I got all the guts for it but the actual adapter ring was back ordered. Should be here soon.
I found a guy that will rebuild the transmission and he said that he has a stripped transmission that I can use for mockup. That will be nice.
I did drop the motor down a bit and I think it looks better. Might give me a little more floor clearance around the transmission hump.
I would like to get the headers but they are $pendy. I am planning on lakes style headers. The ones I am looking at are about $750. Nobody seems to have a used set for sale.
I found a middle row seat out of a 96 Chrysler town and country that fits perfectly. It has the flip down child seats, but I don't really need them.
Working on brake pedal position and various crossmember location issues.

Got the heads back from the machine shop and got them painted and the valves springs installed.
