If the 318 poly you have is from 1957-61, these have the same block bolt pattern as the early (1950's) Hemi engines, and you can use the transmission adapters sold by which fit a variety of later transmissions. If the poly is 1962-66, install a 1967-91 type 318 crank (millions of used ones around, or buy one new from the Mopar Performance catalog) and then you can use a '67-up A-pattern 727, 904, 518 4-spd O/D, etc. which are no problem to get floorshifts for from B&M and others...
