You might reconsider using the 416's on this deal, along w/1.94" intakes (even the 1.84's would work). The PP heads are way past their prime and have nothing going for them, and quite a bit going against them (valve and port size, combustion chamber, non hardened exhaust seats).
Being a '67, this would be a natural for a stealthy, painted-valve cover BBC. Made up to look like a 396 but take it out to a 496.
Bench seat and column shifter stays. Dog dish/steelies painted body color.
