    A '67 is a little late for here, I'd try over at http://www.forabodiesonly.com/ or http://www.bigblockdart.com/ .

    Its a fairly straighforward swap and is done quite a bit. Motor mounts are sold for big block conversions, you'll also need a set of headers specific to that swap (also available) and a new transmission to go along with it since the /6 bell wont fit. For a 440 you'll also likely need a new rear end, since I'm sure you probably have a 7 1/4 in that Dart with the /6.

    Its been covered in depth at both the sites above. :D

    I have done a dozen of these swap but have probably fogtten lots. Pretty straight forward swap. Either swap out with aftermarket motor mounts (slant six is taller on one side of K frame) or back off torsion bars all the way remove and replace K member for a v-8 one (all are the same but you need to use the right motor mounts to match K member as there are two different styles of motor mounts). All electronics will work on either 6 or 8. Radiator swap to match outlets of motor. There ar two different styles of upper control arms but both will fit body, just be sure that you use same spindle that came with upper a arm. Tranny will be spicific for 6 or 8. 6 cylinder torsion bars are smaller diameter but drag racers like this for weight transfer. Any A body torsion bars will fit. hope this helps

    I have a v-8 k-member for a 67 dart if you want to do it that way.

    I specialize in the MOPAR ENGINE SWAPS, I HAVE THE ENGINE MOUNTS, THE CORRECT HEADERS, NO K-MEMBER SWAP, can use your current K-MEMBER.

    I also have the correct A-BODY 8.75 REAR END SET-UP FOR SALE

    You car will NOT BE MODIFIED, in any way, so you would lose value
