Need input. 6 cylinder Chevy project

I have a 53 Chevy pickup that has a 230 out of a 60s auto. I'm wanting to build a gutsy 6 cylinder to lay in it and I'm not sure where I should start. Everybody has the 350 sitting in doghouse and I'd like to do something a little different and old school with a hot 6 cylinder. Going to keep the 3 speed transmission unless I find a good reason not to. My question is, what would be the best engine to build? 250.... maybe. I'm not an engine guy. I'm a paint and body guy. I'm thinking something with a mild cam, maybe three dueces... Appreciate any input.
