    Nice looking installation. I really like your subdued, no bling look.

    First swap I ever did. '65 fleetside short bed 3 on the tree. Flywheel, clutch, starter and motor mounts off the 230 onto the 327. Bolted it right in. First trip around the block said it needed a bigger radiator.

  7. I see you have the larger V8 Radiator and fan shroud. That is the one necessary part of the 6 to V8 swap that gets overlooked. A 6 cyl radiator will not cool a V8. It barely cools the six.
