X2,

you can buy a cast steel 4.250 crank, use stock size 6.135 rods, but you will have to get pistons with a shorter compression height, the cost difference between building a 427, 454, or a 496 is very minimal, like a couple hundred dollars. you go and build a mild 496 and your buddy will be wishing he had done the same.
