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.

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.

|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.|

|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|
