will this fit without major modifications? i believe 1979 was the last year the frame allowed for the 454 fit. its worth doing homework before attempting. i just put a 454 in my 86 and yes the power is there, but had i done my homework i would not have done this becuase the motor did not fit and required major modifications
check out the website and good luck.

I think you need a small diameter crank pulley or else it hits the crossmember.
