I'm an inline six guy so that is what I would run, but we are all different. Looks like a great project you have underway!

I'm a 6 cyl. guy too. but the modern 6 is a little to long.(230, 250,) without cutting fire wall. That's why I went with a v6.

Cool car...
Welcome to the site...
The 4.3's has the same bore as a sbc... They are some great little motor's..When done right they will surprize you...

If your planning to run the fenders, You might run into a little trouble with the Mustang II front end..

If they are glass fenders you can glass in a pocket... Seen some done, But not to good,, If you plan the pocket right you can make it look good..

I don't think you can get around it.... They made a Mustang II front end just for Model A's that wanted to run fenders... I don't think just changing the a-arms will help...

Once you set the fenders on it you will know for sure..

Welcome aboard. I like your project. Good to see an old Chevy that doesn't need to go to a cabinet shop. That will be a really unique cruiser
