You're right that the motor will fit. I haven't heard of people dropping in an auto with a 302. They usually opt for the t5 conversion. That's what I'm putting in my 65-a 302 EFI with a t5.

Your existing 3 speed should work, but can't remember how the bellhousing works. That is whether you need to keep the original bell or get a late model manual. There's some other forums out there that will have some info on this. Just look it up on Google.
