Probably have to fab something for that.  Chryslers never had a small block back then.  First small block in a Chrysler was 73.  A 2 BBL 360 in the Newpies.
 


 
I was gonna say that but I'm tired of arguing with him....

Thanks for the info..

I'm surprised the poly didn't end up in the C's.. It would have been much better than the slant six..

Thank you.
 



I was going to argue with a guy on ebay who was selling one; already had my comment written: "No Chrysler C Body used a small block until...."  The voice of God suggested I look it up first.
 
That car was a nice '71 Royal.

Aw, anyone can make a mistake.  What pisses me off is when I KNOW I'm right but someone keeps arguing with me.  I don't mind saying/admitting when I wrong, but when I KNOW I'm right....
Know what I mean?
I was about to write a similar letter to Hemmings when they wrote about a guy's '59 Mercury with a "383."  I started writing my letter chewing them out for being stupid - but I heard that voice again and looked it up.  Sure enough!  Mercury used a 383 in one model in '58-9.  Who knew????

Didn't the '65 Plymouth and Dodge C's offer the poly 318?

Well, possibly....
 
According to the Standard Catalog of Chrysler, there were 12,400 "low-priced Polora 318 econnmy models" made in '66.  That would have been the poly motor. 
 
Steve, you must mean the 361....

After further reading, the 318 Poly motor was used in the Fury too.  And having read that, I remember driving a '65 Fury with a 318 that was for sale in Olidale about 18 years ago.  The guy wanted $1,500.  Wish I had bought it because it drove gtreat!  It needed work but the price was right.

Why didn't I?  Never been a Plymouth man.

Discalimer #1  This info again comes from the parts book, I'm certainly willing to believe it contains errors. I'm also not positive this means cars were actually built with these motors, simply that mounts/brackets were designed for them. 
 
Disclaimer #2 Pretty sure this info is for US cars only, and that Canadian and export cars may have different motors.
 
Disclaimer #3  This is 1965 only.  Don't know nothin' but no Fusey cars (or even later slabs) :P
 
 
All Imperials had 413
 
Chrysler - 413 or 383
 
Dodge C body - 426 wedge, 413, 383, or 318 (poly)
 
Plymouth C body - 426 wedge, 413, 383, 318(poly) 225 (slant6)
 
B-bodies - All the big blocks from the 426(both kinds) to the 361,  318 (poly) 273 (LA) and 225 (slant6)
 
A-bodies - 273 (LA) 225 or 170 (slant6)
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
So, to get back to the original question:
 
Chrysler and Dodge C's seem to use the same subframe and motor mounts.
 
Dodge had brackets to install both 318 (poly) and big block V-8s
 
B-body cars use the same brackets for both 318 (poly) and 273 (LA) small block V-8s
 
Doesn't this imply that using Dodge C body small block brackets you could install an LA small block into a '65 Chrysler?

No I meant 360.  The discussion is about putting an LA in a 65

Don't know.  Have you contacted soemone like Shumacher and asked what they think?  This is their area of expertise.

But the context of the comment was "What motors were available in '65?"  You said, "360 in the flatlands, maybe."  I don't care where we live, no 360 in '65.  Context....
