found a 63' fairlane 4-door with v8/ man. trans that runs.the price is cheap. i want to make a "moonshine hauler' tribute car out of it( im hoping to update front end with disc brakes. hd sway bar& shocks& maybe rack & pinion?. the rear end with heavier duty rear , poss. a 4-link & coil overs? & dirt track style fuel cell..the interior with hidden 4 pt cage & tied in to the front & rear of chassis for extra stiffness. i have read how the 64' thunderbolts were a "engineering project" to install the 427's in them. however with this being 2012, is there an easier way to get this big block into this intermediate car now a days?... im hoping if the answer is yes?..that by using alum. heads,water pump, racing mini starter, radiator, etc. to take weight off & make the car less "nose heavy", but however get easy hp & torque from a big block as opposed to using a stroker motor( trying to get 375-400 hp & 440- 460 ft lbs with as little machine shop/ custom eng. shop work a s possible.also even though im trying to use modern componets, this eng. is period correct for the time frame of haulers i want to replicate( late 50's early 60's) is this possible?..or should i be looking at 351,347 stroker motors?...any help/advice on the eng swap or suspension mods are greatly appreciated!!!!
