There's really two ways to go; one as I outlined above, will return it to collector car status; the other is a modern power cruiser in a classic body with a suitably sized V8 for it's mass, a modern transmission, disk brakes, modern ancillaries like alternator with 12-18 volt electrical, air conditioning, etc.

Op, i think this is one of those cars that you just have to restore to original condition. It's such an awesome car it would be a shame to alter it. Only thing is you will have a hell of a time finding a 331 hemi, so you may have to use a different powertrain
Do you have any pictures of the car as it is? Early 50's cars just have such an awesome classy look, i would love to have one if i could. You really have a cool project.

Well thanks for info. And I don't mind gettin dirty and yes their is a kit ... but I'm going to put a 251spitfire flat 6 with a t-5 behind it..........

bigdog7373 You won't find any "kits". Just get the 360 mounts and bolt em in. You're going to have to work and get your hands dirty. You can't restore a car with kits. If you want to install kits then buy a honda civic. Other wise you better do you research and get the parts you need cause no one is gonna sell you everything at once.

thanks for the insight does anyone know of a mount kit that would fit a 360 in this car?

prumora1 in 53 the only motors that were in there were hemi's. most likely a 331, all the early hemi's were big blocks of there own kind. plus the trannys were two speeds with enclosed driveshafts and two piece axles. there is a lot that can be done here with the rite amount of money. so do some research and good luck
