Well if that's all you want to do , just find a carbureted 350 engine and tranny from just about any non-computer chevy or GMC full size 2wd pickup or full size car , Impala , Caprice and just run stock manifolds for a 73 to 86 pickup and stock headpipes should bolt right up . Should just be a basic setup . Driveshaft will depend on what tranny comes out of . May have to have one made up but not a big deal .
