Yes, I put a 77-78 motor in a 75 & the motor mounts were a little problem but went in & got it running Ok (then they wanted to not pass smog w/ the newer motor ) the oil filter had to be relocated. ... I later got a 77 and swapped everything to it.
here it is installed

You had to smog a 75 in CA? I thought it was exempt.
