1969 280S engine swap

Does anyone know if a 4.5 from a 1972 280SE will fit in a 1968 280S? There is a straight 6 dual carb in it now.
Thanks

It will, but you will also need to swap the tranny, the cooling system and a bunch of other stuff.

Thanks. I meant to say 1969 280S, but I figure there is no difference between the 69 and the 68 chassis wise.

The previous reply is correct. AND, don't forget a 4.5 loves to eat valve guides just for something to do.
