Welcome! Seems we've been getting a lot of round body wagons lately. Is it a tudor?

Your drive train sounds like a good combination. What did you do to get the 250 block in since they're a bit taller?

And as we always say, post a photo if you can. Hopefully this forum and the club can help with the inspiration.

in reply to redfalken, its a 4 dr,will have to do something about height of 250 blk. so worried about length didn't think of height. welded in new trans hump and bell has about 1/4 to 1/2 inch clearance around it. it's all bolted in but will have to unbolt to hook up trans coolent lines. chev alternator has tight clearance to battery tray. fan to radiator real close but looks good .
