NintendoKD Dont get me wrong, the straight six is by far my favorite engine. If I could source one to put in the. At I would. 6equals eight had some good stuff for the old sixes, edgy still grinds cams for em. Lots of guys on the HAMB are knowledgeable about them. As well as p15d24

cobalt327 The 230 flathead 6 was used until at least '59. It would be the easiest, but not the fastest. I'd imagine one could be had for a reasonable price. There are still hop up parts fior a cool vintage look.

That may sound funny, but I knew a guy who converted an old ceramic drum washer as a hot tank. I have also seen a very unique dishwasher used as a hot tank. Only wIsh I had digital photos.

NintendoKD Leave it patina, clear over it throw a couple blankets over the seats and drop in a magnum 360, which includes converting to 12v. Well..... There is more than one way to skin a cat. I would love to toss a 440 and 727 into it, I even know just where to get one.

hkestes "I want something unique"

So you are going to use a small block Chevy?

I agree with Latech, sell the small block and buy a 360, then it will be unique. Not only that but think about when you are ready to move the Savoy. Mopar guys are not going to want it becuase you bunged it up whith the Chevy, and Chevy guys are not going to want it because it is a Savoy. And lets face it a 54 Savoy is an acquired taste which the vast majority of non-Mopar guys are not going to invest in.

cadillacdave1 .020 overbore machine work might be cheap but then you may need oddball sized pistons which may cost you more. Just bore it the standard .030 and get cheap off the shelf pistons. Overall this is more cost effective and simpler.

double header, I have both. I have a buildable 010 2-bolt main block and the other block for the vortec build is in the shop getting bored/honed. Machinist needed to burn it to get all of the crap out of it, threw it back in the hot tank. Told me yesterday that the rust in cyl's 3 and 5 is not as bad as expected, and he may only have to bore 20 over. My machinist is one of those that says, "the customer is not always right, if you don't do it my way, find another machinist" he doesn't like to go "full bore" he only likes to bore as much as is necessary. $360 for the work is cheap, I would be hard pressed to find a better deal elsewhere.

I'll look into that, I know a guy with some old Mopar rearends lying around, he needs some work on his wifes car. May be able to trade.

The automatic would also make life easier on the stock rearend if you do leave it in there,only thing that would worry me is crossmember/oil pan clearance depending on suspension.
Stock exhaust manifolds may buy you some clearance also,Id mock up an empty block and heads with oil pan and valve covers to stick in there first to check for clearance before committing completely
thought about that, It's too bad I gave all my powerglide, and th350 cores to my buddy at the driveline shop.
I have a 305, that I pulled from a kids 65' impala "ran it out of oil" I can use that to mock up the install. I'll post pics when I get it into the garage. It is going to sit REALLY low, as in, pan scrapingly low I have a set of ramhorns so I should be able to pull it off, either way. I got the approval of the route 66 car club here locally, they are rooting for me now.

I understand you have the sbc.. but you have 2 projects, you can hunt down parts for the mopar..
good luck with whatever you choose

I thought about that, the slant six is my favorite engine besides the HEMI six, and I would love to have either one of those. for budget reasons I have to use what I have.
