A Peculiar Engine Swap

Period correct power plants only and swapping out the 6 for an 8 is fine by me.  And for the love of God no F$#%^@& GM engines in Fords.

 Ron, too funny! Actually my step son has a Commodore 64 under the house with the floppy disc drive and yes, it would probably work too. The Vic 20 I bought for my son, but to print anything, one had to program every line and it needed an old 12" b&l tv for a monitor.
Anyway, back to the engine thing.
Boy, am I with you on no bleepin Chevy sh*t in a Ford!! I cringe when I see a beautiful 30's Ford hot rod or anything else Ford for that matter and some dumbass has put a Chevy lump in it. Should be shot and peed on!! However having said that, I must reluctantly admit, the Chevy with the dizzy at the back (where no-one can work on it) does "package" better regarding spark plug wire routing. Fords and Mopar's can look a bit messy in that regard.
Geoff.

Put a Y block in if you like the rear distributor. Ford saw that error and changed pretty quick. Even with hood opening to the front was a pain. Don't see how it would make it any different? I know the Y-block had all the brackets to hold them so the exhaust did not meld them.

That is awesome Geoff, I remember typing in lines of code to be able to print on the 64 as well. If you screwed up one line you had to start from scratch. God that sucked. It is funny you mentioned a 30s Ford hot rod one of my father's old friends has an award winning 32 Ford with a Chevy 350 (of course). I just did the carbs last week for him. I did make it run nice for a Chevy. I told him he should put a Cleveland in there because they are just prettier IMO.

 I might have 'fixed it' so it didn't run!! Oh how sad, too bad, time for a replacement Ford motor!!
