Yes.
The rear-axle is from a '72 Plymouth RR/GTX by the way.

Oh boy, I assume it had Suregrip. I smell awsome 1960 Chrysler NewYorker burn outs. What gears are in it?

It currently has a non-SG '489' 3.23 in it with a large yoke.
But, depending on what engine will go in to this car, I will replace it with a SureGrip-version.
I've got a '741' 3.23 SG ready to be installed at the moment.

Well, ya know...  I'm not really sure myself either...
It might aswell be my 496" stroker who'll finds it way into the engine-bay.

One thing is for sure, the original 413 is not going back in the car pretty soon.
I'm currently rebuilding the 392 Hemi for my wagon, and it's crank needs to be welded and reground back to .010" oversize just like the rest of the mains and rod-journals. Can you say "costly"?
The same thing has to happen to the 'special' longer 1960 - 413-crank, unless I swap it for a 440-crank. Next to that, the complete engine needs a full overhaul aswell, so more money to be poured... Won't happen at the moment.
So I decided the original 413 won't be tackled as of yet, and I will either drop in the current 413-engine of my stationwagon, a rebuilt 11:1cr 440, or the freshly built 496", which was originally planned for the '64 NY.

Decisions-Decisions-Decisions... 
- If I pull the wagon's 413 now, it won't run again for at least some months until the Hemi is built again... not really what I want, but this engine is the most suitable candidate actually.
- The rebuilt 440 has 11:1compression, a wild, solid cam and steel heads at the moment... Too much cam and compression for the intended use in the '60. Especially when the longrams are going to be installed on it aswell, adding more cylinderpressure.
- The 496" stroker engine is a viable option because the '64 which it was planned for, won't be driving for quite some time anyway, so this will give me some time breaking in the engine in the '60NY.
But this engine also has a wild (solid) cam, so it won't be able to cope with a stock stallconvertor. So will I go as far to change the inputshaft on the pushbutton-tranny just to accomodate a higher stall convertor, in a car that's not really build for such an engine? [:/]

Well thats a dilly of a pickle there. I f push comes to shove i guess
the 413 from the wagon would go in  the easiest even thought I get
the drift you dont want to take it off the road and I dont blame you.

Did you ever figure out what you are going to do?

I've just installed a 'tame' cam in the 496 stroker. This motor will be finding it's way into Project 60's enginebay pretty soon.

I've learned the more I try NOT to redo things over and over again, the more I get to do things over and over again in the end... So for now I just go for the 'fun-factor' and use the stroker engine in the '60 for a while.

... Only to run into a slight issue with valvecovers, adj.rockers and the longram-intake manifolds....
The longrams want to have 'stock' valvecovers under them, unless they won't fit... but the adj.rockers will hit the stock valvecovers, so they also need the room. I will be trying to put 2 rubber gaskets under the covers hoping this will clear the rockers and not have them hitting the intakes yet, otherwise I'll have to do another DOWNGRADE and install the stamped steel rockers... Which idea I still don't like at the moment.

We'll have to see.

I was looking at those this morning.  But decided to go with Hydros because I don't want to deal with it, nor the mess.  LAZY!  LOL

Nah, the manifold in the picture is just to keep the intake-side of the heads covered so no dust will be able to fall in.
These babies shown below will be installed;

Yep. Bought it 9 years ago already on a Phoenix, Az swapmeet.
"Finally' I've got a suitable car to put these in.

Over the years I've collected a number of fun toys, but  now I'm having great difficulty in deciding which toy should end up in which car...
I'm getting there, but ever so slowly unfortunatly.
