what should I put in?

I just got a job and I really want to put a bigger engine in my truck (1985 GMC Sierra 1500 shortbed 2wd w/a 305). I want to fix this truck up nice. I plan to put in a larger engine, paint it, chrome rims,and then lower it. Well anyways what should I put in it for an engine, One of My friends dads has a 327 that he said he'd sell me for $900, he just did a lot of work to it,(he teaches automotive class). well all comments are appreciated

thanks

We'd would need to know more about what's been done to the 327 and how complete it is before evaluating it. $900 sounds a bit steep right now.

Well find out some info on it and let us know. However for a truck motor a 327 is a bit small. I'd be lookin more towards a 350, 383 or even a 400.
