you will need new brackets, and things such as distributor and exhaust manifolds if your new engine doesn't include those. I believe the motor mounts are the same, but while doing a swap, I would put fresh mounts on anyway.
Your transmission bellhousing will bolt right up, but if if using an automatic, I am fairly certain you need a different torque converter. If it is a manual transmission, I believe the flywheels are the same, but am not certain
Your front springs might be a little light as the 351 is about 60-70 pounds heavier fully dressed, or you could relocate the battery to the rear of the car to offset the weight gain up front.
Consider a monte carlo bar (a curved one will probably be necessary) and subframe connectors (weld in) to keep the body from getting twisted by the extra power.
