"new" Hemi 5.7L, 6.1L, or 392 in a deuce?

I'm preparing to build a 32 Roadster based on a Dearborn Deuce body and need some info/advice. Does anyone know if the new style Hemi will fit between the hood sides of a 32? We are thinking of running either a 6.1L or the 392, but want to be able to run hood sides. According to Street and Performance the engines are 26" wide. So if anyone knows of a 32 or the like with one of these engines please let me know.

Pictures would be great!

A SBC fits with no problems and it is 22" wide. The new hemi will add 2" to each side so it may just fit.
