Is it do-able? Yes, for a high cost for the adapters from the engine to the transmission, or from the transmission to the transfer case.

Sometimes free isn't as free as you'd like. For the costs you could pick up a core AMC360 engine and rebuild it and not have the adapter costs, as well as having everything stock. it's an alternative you may want to consider.

You could also get the engine, and an MOPAR automatic TF727, 904,999 and swap it's output shaft assembly and tailshaft for an AMC to fit the MOPAR. That's doable as well, but can get exotic looking for parts.
