You can never go wrong with the 350. In my opinion that is what I would use. I am quite jealous right now. This is one of my dream cars, and would love a project like this. I plan on trying to find an old Camero or Mustang in a few years. I got another bike on my list next, then comes a project car to play with. You got any pics? would love to see it.

I put a Chevy ZZ3 crate motor in my 1972 Vette back in the 90's. It was a beast! If the road was just a little wet, it woudl easily spin the tires. (And I had 1984 Vette wheels & tires on it!)

Creat motors are cheaper than rebuilds, unless you want to okeep matching numbers.

Am I missing something? Cause I can spin tires on dry pavement with my mom's grand marquis. lol That thing's a beast with it's little 4.6
