I have seen a big block Ford in a 1965 full size Chevy and even one in a Corvette so, I can only presume that it would fit even better with the high hood line of a tri-five Chevy.

Funny Story (in an ironic sort of way): Van once installed a 460/C6 into a 1963 split window Corvette at his shop, for his wife, test fired it, went through the gears with his foot on the brake, turned the car off, and went home. That night his shop burned to the ground.

Morning JACKAZZFLATZ,

Your car sounds to be dangerously close to something I might want.

Couple questions if I may:

Do you have the OE front frame or all new aftermarket ?
Did you have to set back the firewall ?

The 4R100 is also something I'm interested in. Did you get a programming box and an aftermarket lock-up convertor ?

Thanks a bunch !

I know it's a pain to post pictures here, but I'd love to see some if you have some.
