i have heard of this being done before but i personally do not know anyone who has done this swap. it is alot more common for people to drop windsors in than clevelands. if you want to go big block i recommend the 460. portmaster is right you should change your plan.

portmaster check your PM's

Clevelands were introduced in late 1969, however they carried a 1970 part # on the block which is #D0AE, so it cannot be a 1969 Cleveland technically.
Check the # on your block to be sure.

But headers and an oil pan/pickup tube will be the major components that you'll need if you decide to drop it in.

You can use a 1975-up 351M,400, or 460 Duraspark distributor if you decide to go with an electronic ignition as opposed to the old points style distributor.

The swap is super simple. The Cleveland is a small block. 302 engine mounts bolt right up as does a 302 tranny. Swap headers and a swap oil pan(just as needed with a Windsor) and you are good to go.
