67 j2000 engine swap.

I have a 1967 J2000 with a 327 Vigilante motor in it with a 4 speed. I was wondering if a later model amc motor like a 304 or 360 would bolt up to the motor mounts and bellhousing

No. You will have to do some swapping. The 327 is a good motor, so unless there is a pressing need to replace it, you might want to focus on the brakes, drivetrain, etc... and do the motor last.
That being said, I would opt for a 350/400/20 drivetrain ot of a similar year J series or Waggy. The easiest course of action would be to drop the entire drivetrain in and swap the steering column.

Nothing bolts in place of the AMC 327 other than another AMC 327, unfortunately. It is a good engine, but they are getting harder and harder to find parts for. My dad still has a '66 Rambler with that engine which he bought brand new. He had a helluva time finding a starter for it a couple of years ago.

Yea. That's my only reason for wanting to replace it eventually.

When did the T400 use the adaptor plates?
Are there not certain years that had a GM Turbomatic bolt pattern with an adaptor plate between?

Semi-related to the subject.
