You could make an A15 engine & gearbox fit into it, but why?
If i remember rightly, the engines used in mid 60's Bluebirds were derived from these godawfull A40 engines. I suspect that they are interchangeable, but you can't fool the resto brigade with these Datsun engines.
Once they realise that it doesnt leak oil, is as reilable as Big Ben, & perform like a real car should, they will know you had pulled a swiftie right away.

These are a reasonably heavy car & something of about 2L would fit OK as the engine bay should be well & truly roomy enough, & it would drive a bit better. Even a stock L20B should do the job nicely & later engines, like the CA series, even better still.

In my view, the "A" series Datsun engines shine best in the smaller, lighter sized cars that they were intended for.
