You can run the original front end. But it was built 53 years ago using 60+ year old technology. If I were you, I would get a MII kit. I am putting a TCI kit in my 41. Easier to install than a clip. Correct width. Modern ball joints, bushings, rack and pinion steering, disc brakes, etc.

The original front ends work well with the small blocks, only seen a couple with MII kits installed, it will save you time and money, for 1, the disc brake kit is available for less than the MII compleate kit by about 400 bucks, you can also retain the original steering colum which I think looks good and compliments the car. You will only need to move the E brake system as it is in the way of a small block Chevy. I have a '51 Fleetline and did a lot of research on what to do to put a 350 in, but I decided to stay with my 235 inline.
