Skips , although I am sure there will be disagreement here , I believe that outside of the V-8 Flatty in the older trucks the 327 is the only legit period motor to put in these old trucks ..I kills me to see 350's etc. in these things . Did you do a powerglide also ?

THANKS!

When I bought this project it had a 700r4 in it and I didn't have the money to change it so I put it back in, Still a long road with steering, wiring harness, driveshaft, fuel cell and full brakes to do but I will keep posting as I go along, need funds again but can still work with what I already have to get more done smile

Skips, I was reading that a first gen Camaro fuel tank fits nicely between the frame rails. The filler tube extends out the rear of truck and a fold up license plate bracket can be attached to high the filler neck.

My wife has a 68 Camaro, so I'm going to take some measurements once it gets above 32!
