well i put a 350ci 350 tubo in a 1940 chevy 2dr sedan. i started with a 57 chevy rearin, i removed the front clip. i set the eng. trans together in, witha little clearance at the firewall. then i measured from the trans. to the rearin and headed for the junk yard, checking all the chevy i could find untill i found one which was a inch longer than what i thought i wanted. vevery thing work out from there. i made my own eng. mounts, but you can but them. i also welded in a mustang II rack, which you can but one that bolts in, i wish i'd used 2in. drop spindle. i got adaptor plates from a friend and made plates to use chevy rotors and calipers, which can be bought. i used a late model brake booster master cyl and safety switch. i went on to ps air cond. electric windows, and wipers, diginal dash, 60\40 seats (mine was a two door. hey the worlds a stage, try your act, you're better than you think.LOL

Think about a late-model 250cid inline 6. Check CLifford for valve covers, manifolding , headers, duals. Have a little fun, many hot inlines cruised the drive-ins and street races too. Fun is fun, some is just cheaper than others.
