3spd manual to manual

Hi, I recently brought a HJ Belmont ute, its a pretty big project but has a pretty good body and numbers matching 202, 3spd manual. I'm wanting to keep the column shift and dash so my question is will my 3spd bolt to a 253 or 308?

You will need a V8 bellhousing and input shaft.
Probably easier to find a V8 gearbox with bellhousing.
Does any boday know if the V8 column shift linkage rods are the same as 6 cylinder?

Old is good.

you make a point of saying it's numbers matching so if you think that is a good point , maybe leave the original engine?

I'm never worked out what matching numbers on a holden actually means? Where do they match? if I swapped engines with an close dated engine same for same how would anyone know with out the original paper work which 95% of cars don't have.

A taxi named after a fish blew my 5 litre Vn to the weeds.

I guess it means different things to different people and what they value..it is a loosely used term...for those that desire something as authentic and as original as possible it will mean something..my personal take re a Holden is it would be a car that has the original engine, gearbox and diff as well as major bolt on components..most likely reconditioned...probably only the engine number being able to be identified by the original paperwork...and any numbers dates on other components aligning to when the car was built...the next step maybe a replacement engine or gearbox that is similar in age and can be verified to be close to the build date of the car...if the car is modified/customised then it really doesn't matter much as the car is valued on another basis..not it's originality...interested in others views...from a collector perspective I would imagine a totally original immaculately preserved car (including paint) would be more highly sought after than a modified/restored car of the same model...because it would be very rare to have survived in such condition for such a long time...

A wise man once said,
You can restore a car to factory spec all you want,
But it’s only original once
