Engine/trans swap in a 51 ford

Hi I have a 51 ford and want to put in a 302 motor with a 3 speed manual transmission hooked up to the original 3 on the tree. Any suggestions to a motor trans combo or what car woulod be a good donor for this conversion.
I was told to use a 70's motor with a 68 toploader 3 speed. Are there any other options. I'm not sure what parts I should be looking for.

Thanks for any help.
