280se v8 swap

I have a 74 280se sitting at my dads shop, and it has been sitting there for 15 years. The engine is total garbage so I was thinking about doing a v8 swap, but instead of going to the 4.5 (which I have seen other people do), I am thinking about going with a chevy 350 engine. The biggest issue I think that I will be facing would be if the engine will fit in the engine bay. If I do go through with the swap it won't start taking place until the end of summer when I have the money. I just wanted to see if anyone has ever done this swap or even heard of someone doing this. I'd appreciate any input or knowledge on the swap. Thanks guys.
