Recently acquired a 35 humpback with a nova subframe. Natural inclinations are to jump at the first GM small block donor car that looks good for drive train. I am wondering however, what others would be fairly compatible, such as a mopar 440, or 5.0 ford. If anyone has done such a project, I am wondering about clearance problems etc. you might know of. I have done a couple swaps, stuffed a 413 into a 41 master deluxe coupe few years back, so I can probably handle this unless there are serious compatibility problems with the subframe clearance. Any input would be appreciated.

I have a 1935 Ford humpback with a Ford 302 installed. Installation is very clean and functional. I suggest you pay a lot of attention to the driver side steering linkage--a very tight area, that will require lot of thought on how best to position the steering assembly and not interfere with the exhaust and frame.

I prefer the Chevy SB. It is shorter, narower, and I belive lighter than the ford SB. Parts are cheaper and their is greater interchange ability. Truth is you can make anything fit. It is just a matter of how much work you want to do. Chevy SB, Easy! Chrystler Hemmi, Hard (but doable).

Good Luck
