Much to be considered here. if you are custom fabricating the Camaro front clip to your truck, consider, front wheel location as it relates to your front fenders first, what transmission are you using, firewall clearance, driveline length, transmission height for angle of your driveline to the rearend, exhaust clearance, and even hood clearance if a large intake or carb is to be used. steering box and rods to reach the column often interfere with headers also. I would not recommend trying to measure anything without first mocking it all up in place on jackstands. the camaro front clip should be narrower than the old truck frame rails this gap must be bridged somehow, and GOOD.

The camaro should have motor mount holes and you will need the 350 motor mounts to bolt in.Hopefully the engine fan will be the correct distance from the radiator when mounted.The fire wall will need to be cut and prefabricated for the fit of the transmission.Did you measure the wheel width of the two front ends before starting as their might be a difference.Best of luck on your project.

If it were me, the motor would be mounted exactly where it should be in relation to the stub frame from the camaro. I would modify everything else around that, since the stub frame was made for the 350.
