Put a couple of bucks in the 283. It'll blow a 318 away. If you want to go bigger you can pick up chevy engines dirt cheap and you can build them for cheap. Compare the prices on Chevy and MoPar after market parts before you make this swap. Just my thoughts.

Have 1951 Chevy Fleetline Coupe w/ 6 cylinder, but would like to replace w/ SB. Did you swap engines in your truck, if so did you fab engine mounts or buy?

The easiest way to put a SBC in anything is to pick up a universal bolt in crossmember with SBC mounts. They're available from several of the street rod aftermarket houses and are cheap to boot. Same thing is available for the trans. So for an investment of about $150 you can bolt a SBC in just about anything out there.
