Post sbc in every thing?

now don't get me wrong, i like chevys just fine, most of my vehicals have been chevys.
but why is it that every body uses the small chevy motors? last week i worked on a 1934 ford (i work at a drive line shop) with a chevy 350.
now i don't currently own a muscle anything, and my knowledge of engines is average (never built one, i know i could/ will.)
i have driven some fords and mopars that had all kinds of power. so why the sbc every where?
better design? availability? reliablity?
here i'm asking why sbc and i'm looking at buying 1 of 2 70's gm cars. well,,,, one is an olds.
i am just curious, an i think if i could get a good ansewer as to why, it would be from the guys and girls that know. sorry about the double post, i screwed up!
