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.

So the Buick 350 from a jeep would bolt right in?

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.
