Welcome to Apple Discussions!
I think your best source for info on this is one of the 'modding" sites. If you google for "apple mods" and "mac mods," you should find lots of info. I've seen several where someone put a Mac Mini inside tthe case of a Color Classic with good results. It's probably one of the more successful mods, along with putting a Mini in an iMac G3 CRT case.
With these conversions, it's the video connections that are key to a good outcome and most of the sites I've seen cover this critical step quite well.
Keep us posted on how you get on with it.

Like Allan suggested, I'd go to some of the other enthusiest Apple communities. Some are even around modding old Apple hardware.
I'm sure it's possible to do, although you probably will have to do some of the wiring and adapting the monitor yourself to the Mini's output.
Although, if you get it working using a B&W 1-bit monitor will likely not work well. OS X can't display that low of a bit depth and resolution. A Color Classic monitor may work better, or you could go online and find a replacement monitor that fits in there and has a higher resolution and is easier to set up.
People have done similar projects though. Good luck, it sounds like a fun project!
