    I have had this in my barn way to long. I have everything I need, I just need to start wrenching. Most of the rust is just on the surface and not ate through.

    I have an AMC 360 and a 454 from a 77 Chevy truck sitting in the shop. Not sure which just yet. This project is going to be one of those things I will work on as time is available.

    Put the 454 and a turbo the size of ur head and leave it the way it is, make it the ultimate ricer lmfao in all seriousness it's not gonna be ur dd so u don't need to worry about gas every day so the 454 should be good
