So I have a 49 chevy fastback. I'm wanting to do a traditional engine build instead of what everybody has been doing for the last 40 years. Last year I went to a show and my biggest complaint is under the hood everything was the same and it got stale. Everybody goes to the V8 and sticks it in there and I don't have a problem with that I just feel it's over done. I do like V8 engines but I want to use a strait 6 because it's not something you see every day. My thoughts are to use a 292 in this car but I'm not sure it can be done without cutting the firewall back like pontiac did or making the fenders longer like Buick did. I know there is more room under the hood because of the 235 but is it enough. I have searched and searched and have found nothing on using a 292 as a hotrod engine. I'm wanting that original look to the point that the average person won't know what's different but anybody who spends time around these creatures knows what has been done. I can't measure the car because my front fenders and hood are being held on my a rope of a mock up on how bad the damage from drees growing next to the car is. Does anybody know what will need to be done. I don't mind changing the mounts but extending parts is not what I want to do because it changes the look more than I want.
