Those valve covers look "fat" and make the motor look bigger. But the big block would look nicer, especially with some Crowler injection.

That does look sweet... The valve cover is some I just had laying around the shop...

My plan from the beginning was to put a big block in it,, Make a home made intake with 8 pipes coming out the intake 90ing over the top of the valve covers with 8 side draft carb's... Something very wild looking...

But for now... It will most likely end up with a tall tunnel Ram...

I did have the whole motor and trans out my 41Willys offered back to me...

The height of the tunnel ram would work great on that car. But then of course a good old GMC 671 blower would work too.

This would look sweet sitting in there... Take the bug catcher off, add some tall stacks..And some older valve covers..
I know one thing for sure,,, It would sound bad a** with that motor... I have a big cam in that one..

I think you just may have to switch the power plant - those hemis look pretty good. Thanks on the tire size.
