454 Marine Motor

Can anyone tell me how tall this motor is and if it can be used in a Chevy truck?

I'm not completely sure. I have been told it may have been an old army motor. Would that make any sense?

An old army marine engine. Wow. That sounds like a rare bird.

I know the exhaust manifold will not work unless you are building a swamp truck. lol

Typically marine engines are very mild. Low compression with very low lift cams. You would most likely need to change the cam for any kind of performance.
