I have a 454 in my 65 Marlin, same chassis. I used the stock front end, the 454 is over 100 lbs lighter than the original V8. I installed 80 Concord disc brakes, they bolt on to the original spindle uprights. I also used a 70 Javelin sway bar, you have to drill 4 holes to install it, fits perfectly, and mounts in front unlike the stock one under the oil pan. The steering box is the same as a Chevelle box, so the Saginaw pump runs it fine. If you want a quick ratio box, 93 to 97 Grand Cherokee fits with a change of hoses.
