    Afternoon Mopar Gang
    Here is my situation ,i am having a hard time finding a Mopar in Reasonable shape to put my 440 in , so in order to get my focus back on this i am thinking off trying to find another MFG to drop the 440 and 727 in and possibly put a Ford 9 inch rear end in , Any thoughts or ideas on how to find a car(Besides Mopar)to fit it in
    Ty for your support✌

    That's just sick! Mopar or no car. Find yourself one of those cute little Chevy engines.

      Go on Racing Junk, find a Hillman, Thames, Henry J, Allstate, Some old gasser that is just dying to get on the road again.
      Too bad this covid crap is going on or I would tell you to come and buy my 63 Belvedere.

          Another option a mid 70's Dodge pickup, lots of parts available and will take any engine combo.

                I would hunt down a old Nova or Camaro body, just to screw with the bowtie folks.

                There is a 55 Chevy in the Des Moines area with a 383 mopar in it lol.

                    IMO it's a Mopar engine - so put it in a freakin' Mopar.

                      You probably won't find a good candidate for that engine, so you might as well let me take it off of your hands so I can retire the 440 I have...

                          What's your budget? 80s Dodge trucks would be easy, maybe a BB Cordoba/Fury A 2wd Jeep

                                A Willys is a great candidate too
                                or an early Ford

                                why not every douche under the sun puts a Chevy in them
