Default Re: Begging to be a hot rod.

I wuz just thinkin', if you are really set on converting the roadster to a hot rod, why use a Chevy drive train? A nice 302 or 347 stroker backed by a C4 would work very nicely. There are many parts available for this swap. I know most rodders used Chevy items but I am a firm believer in keeping things with the same manufacturer. Yeah, I know that my 1930 coupe is Chevy powered with a Turbo 350 but I bought the car that way. Had I done the swap it would have been a 347 stroker and C4 or C6 automatic. AND the distributor is in the front so the firewall won't need to be relieved. You can hide the entire swap by using the full hood and side panels.
