Engine swap - 72 280SE 4.5 into a 66 250S

I have an opportunity to buy a 72 donor car and was wondering how difficult it would be to swap engine/transmissions? I'm assuming I need to swap reargears/end as well along with the guage cluster and steering column (going from floor mounted manual to column shift auto). Thanks!
