    Very cool! I have a 56 Dodge 270 Poly sitting on a cart in my shop. As someone said before, I always thought it would look sweet in an exposed engine car. Where did you get the adapter for the 700r4?

    from Motor City

    Any 1st-gen Hemi trans adapter works on this block so I used a readily-available Hemi-to-GM adapter.

    Also, don't forget to check in with the legendary 73RR...he is in your area; Bend, OR. He built me this as a long block and shipped to me in Detroit via Fastenal. We are now fitting up the bits and pieces to run it on the stand. If I were located closer to Gary, I would have some cool engine projects going before he got around to the Restraining Order.

    Good deal. Thanks guys. I'll keep them in mind if I end up dropping the 270 in something.
