another 366 big block Q

i have searched about this motor and seen talk about whether or not its a good engine to hot rod but my question is. is it a good engine to put in a coe?
i have a 51 ford coe that i am gonna sit on a old drag car hauler that use to have a 64 chevy cab on it and hauled a 57 drag car. i don't plan on hauling *** but i want to be able to load one of my cars and be able to haul it with the power to climb a hill with out killing the motor going from show to show. i was gonna put a cummings but there to hard to find at a great price and then i was gonna put a 454 in it. a friend told me to put a 366 in it since it is what is on the big trucks. any info would be great.
now i have to go fill out my intro

Here are 200 threads that have "366" in them somewhere.
While I would agree that it is not the best platform from which to build a performance motor, there is an old saying in the Navy "Any port in a storm", meaning a 366 is better than no motor.

Keep the static compression ratio low (8.0-9.0) so you can use a short cam, maybe something like this....

I've never done this myself so this is just opinion...
Seems to me, you'll spend the same $$ to build a 366 as a 454 but come up 88 cubes short. A little more probably gets you a 496 or 502.
Paint everything orange and put 366 stickers on it.
