Hotrodding a well-preserved classic like that should get somebody 30 days in the electric chair!

Just as a reminder, this is the HiPo forum. Explcitly for performance upgrades.

Secondly, this thread is several years old. It has come to the top due to some backend maintenance but the OP has not logged in since 2021.

It still has a lot of termite food so frame flex with a higher torque engine could be a problem.A 400hp small block will have a radical cam, high compression, and get 12mpg on a good day. You can get a bone stock LS/LT with 400hp that idles baby butt smooth and gets 20 plus mpg if any of this means anything. Your wife can drive it to the store and let it idle with the a-c going.
