I don't think so. They are often different boxes too, as in ratios. For example, from the 1967 full size Engineering Technical specs:

283 - 1530rpm stall and 1.82:1 low and reverse.
327 - 1680rpm stall and 1.72:1 low and reverse.

Varying number of clutches used too.

Some of the stall will be accounted for by more torque from the 327 though.

Take it to a transmission shop before you put it in. Seals especially rubber seals get hard. They will tell you quickly if it is OK or not. If the box is OK and just needs a few seals then it won't cost much and you'll get it back with a new filter and pan gasket plus converter, yoke, selector shaft, speedo drive and filler tube seals. Plus if it hasn't remained sealed bugs love auto transmission fluid.
