So I'm to the point where I need to figure out what engine/trans combo I want to run in my '50 shoebox. I've got the original flathead and 3 speed for it, but as far as highway cruising goes.... That combo just doesn't seem feasible on my budget. Even if I put a different trans behind the flatty, I don't feel like I'll have enough power to move the car at highway speeds. Moving on, I know a sbc is pretty straight forward as far as the swap goes. But I've been thinking I want to do something a little different. So some other ideas I had were: 331 caddy, nailhead, 348 Chevy. I know there's a lot more knowledge out there than what I have. So what do you all think? Do's, don't's, tips, or tricks?
