It will work. . . .   Tight. . .
 
Fender well Mods are needed.  You'll need to put a bigger rear in it . . .  If it has an 8 1/4 that will work, but not as well as a 8 3/4.
 
You trying to keep up with the Jones?  LOL

There was a Diplomat wagon 440 6 pack on Ebay a while ago-wood grain trim and all-including leather seats-

It's just the inners that cause a problem. 
 
I saw one with a 383 where the guy heated the inners and pulled them out with a comealong.  Actually looked very good and only slightly weakened it.  I was impressed.

Many weak links-like the rear diff as mentioned--and the transmission is not set up to handle the power of a big block.
Yes it is an A-833 but the OD version without the heavy splines.
An older 4 speed from a muscle B or E will bolt right in.
I would leave the exterior of the car alone but put in a pistol grip shifter.
I had seen several big block conversions on F/M/J platforms.
But for a better balanced car build up a 340 or budget 360.
If you really want to go cheap build a healthy 318 and the OD will still be able to take the abuse.
Or install a T5 5 speed tranny robbed from a Phord Mustwang
Or build up the slant 6 with fuel injection and turbo power!!

If I'm tracking with Brother Ar, it's the 380 horse version of the crate 360.  Is that what you're thinking Ar?

No, not stroked, just built.  With the popularity of stroked motors today, MP's original crate motors are being ignored.  They sell stroked small blocks, but they still offer the 360 in various Horsepower ratings; 1 is 380 HP.  The others are less.

I see one manufacturer has a so called "small" block punched and stroked to 440 inches.
Sounds like a ticking time bomb to me.
