8rc to 18r swap

I have a 1971 Corona MkII Wagon with an 8rc and 3 speed automatic that Im considering swapping in an 18r with a 4 speed manual out of a 1971 Celica. Does anyone know if it will fit or will I have to make some modifications to my car.

The engine blocks are very similar should be a direct swap outside of some minor wiring. The problem is the clutch and brake pedals I have no idea if the Celica ones will work in your car.

Got any pictures? That's a rare car.

The Coronas were available with a manual so I just have to find a clutch pedal assembly somewhere.
