Of the choices offered, Cadillac is the easiest bolt in.
I'd go with the Olds engine. They are plentiful, Olds made them (in Lansing, Michigan) from 1949 through 1964. There are a ton of spare and aftermarket parts available. The power output - stock! - is up to 350 HP and 440 lb. ft. of torque.
Lots of dress up pcs available too m
The 302 GMC six is awesome motor. Guys back in the day (my time) hotrodded Jimmies often.
I owned a '57 Mark back in 1977-82. The frame was rusty but the engine ran great.
I think you could use Ford Y block bellhousing /transmissions on the 368 /383 Mel's.
previous thread I said rocket, the jimmy would be pretty rad though
man.... is it 2028 yet? don't know if I can wait that long to see what engine wins....
How about 445 cubic inches of bored, stroked, ported, polished, oversized valved, cammed, roller rockered Nailhead!!! Hypothetically of course
@Moriarity I'm projecting an early winner in the Cadillac.
Cadillac..........Olds is boring and Hemi is too heavy and wide.
Well , at least I know now what is wrong with my Olds…..something has always bothered me about that and now I know

Could I suggest an FE? It's not exactly on the light side at 600#
Man... is it 2028 yet? Can’t wait to see who wins
@Moriarity I Un checked the box where it says (Poll will end in 2028) so it should be done now.
It now says the poll will end in 7 Days.
Haha, cool... I didn’t think I was going to live long enough to see the outcome. Lol
Love it, very very nice. Did a '40 with 392 hemi, 4 two's, 727. On the fence.
