What block series is it?

It WILL fit in ANY vehicle you like. That is what hot rodders do..... make things fit.

Yeah, I'm not familiar with a "573" BB anything unless it's a custom built 385 series and you'd need some special parts for that. By special I mean $$$$pecial. If it is one of those LARGE truck engines (the 477 is the only one that pops into my head but there was a 5 something as well,maybe 514)....they make great truck engines, but probably not worth the efforts required to mount it in a car...unless you use a 2.00 rear gear. Who knows, could be a hoot.

Best site is www.pirate4x4.com, it's a BBS just like this. I'm 'loveshackle' there.

Other than that, watch my project journal :D .

Arkie has some good stuff, although I've never run any of it, being a CO guy. Lots of wheeling around Hot Springs, the way I hear it...

I beleive it would be a 534, same family as a 477 my dad had one in a mobile home hauling truck(toter) that thing would pull a 14x70 off a spot in high gear at idle,monster tourque but they won't rev high.about 7 to 1 compression .huge physically but will be different.
