If I were to do another street rod, I would go with the GM LS1/LS6 motor for the following reasons: Generation 3 motors do not leak like the Generation 1: Has full roller valve train: Utilizes cal paks for ignition: Nice, smooth performance that will deliver exceptional fuel economy in comparison to carbed motors, TPI, TBI, or aftermarket units: Have the compact, cast brackets on the front of the motor for serpentine belt setup, almost a must for the restricted engine bay length of the 34 Ford or Chevy: Readily available in low mileage at a reasonable price: Plenty of after market bolt-ons, including performance chips, if you are so inclined.

All good advice. I just bought a TPI system off an IROC for my '76 Monte Carlo. EFI used to intimidate the crap out of me but once I took the plunge and really started reading up on it I can't wait to get started.
