Back in the '70s my dad built a 153 and put in his '59 Corvette! He built the mounts so it would bolt in and not destroy the car. He also ran a T-50 5 speed from an early Monza, and a Clifford header. He left the stock intake and ran a modified Holley carb. We took the car to Bloomington Vette show and got 26 MPG. It was fun to drive.
