how big 350 engine compartment?

stupid 350 chevy question. I am going to put in a chevy 350 from a old caprice. Problem Is a similar vehicle is so far away it is impractical for me to get the measurments right now. So my stupid question is how much space for a 350 chevy engine length width and depth including radiator?

I am planning on automatic 350 chevy transmission and 2 wheel drive with Toyota 1st gen Landcruiser axles and diffl. got 36 inch long leaf springs with 8 inch arch. should fit 31.5 inch tires no prob.

The Jeep is a ww2 style willys new made in Philippines. Just need ot tell the shop guy the engine compartment size. As Im shipping it to Phoenix after it is done and Im just going to use a Caprice or similar full size Chevy car as a donor vehicle to finish it there to get around the import laws.
