You would be MUCH farther ahead to contact one of the centrifugal supercharger manufacturers. Money and time...
You will have to buy a complete motor if you are looking for a used factory supercharger out of a scrapyard (they will not split the motor up, it becomes unsellable if they do that) and the supercharger should probably be rebuilt before you fire it up on your 6. Let alone the fitment and carburation problems you will have to solve.
Do some research... get some prices for the direction you want to go and then compare them to an aftermarket source... Also take into consideration you will get support and advice from the aftermarket and none from a junkyard...
Don't take me wrong, this is doable... You have to decide how much money you want to spend and how much fabricating and problem solving you can do to fit the computer controlled supercharger to your engine... AND make it work.

forget that, just put a 400 or a 455 in there. i have a 76 400 for sale. oil pan to carb, just missing the dist and it needs to be assembled. if interested pm me. but i dont think you should waste the money on a supercharger for the motor.
