in your case the low cost is because the parts where widely used on many g.m. cars..

scott liggett did this swap on his 65/66
if you are making use of facebook..
look him up and friend him and ask about what he used, and how he likes it, it's been on his car for a good 8-12 months now, and it's his daily driver, in la traffic..
iirc it used chevelle parts, and was fairly cheap.. and easy to find parts..

if you ask for his input , as thats better than any of us, as he did the swap and lives with it daily, tell him mark furgal aka gearheadslife sent you..

good luck
