I once tried to swap a 318 into my 65' Pontiac Tempest just to get it to the Zip Tie Drags. Unfortunately, it needed too many mods and I ran out of time, but at one point, the 318/727 was sitting in the engine bay. The original Pontiac motor was siezed and I couldn't get parts in time to rebuild it either, so I ended up roadtripping the Super Bee to Tuscon. Cars are easily changed to whatever you want to build and putting a 440 back in your car is just as easy, if not easier, than swapping in the LS. I had that 318 sitting in the Pontiac in less than an hour. I do gotta say I like what you're doing here. I respect the build and understand that not everyone has a $10k budget to throw in a modern Hemi in it. These things are meant to be driven and if an LS gets it on the road, f#@%ing send it!!! I was really hoping to see a L33 5.3 in there, or any aluminum block LS, to get the weight down off the nose, but those cost more. I am more interested in what you are going to do to get it out on a road course. I've had my Bee out for some HPDE's and I gotta say the B-body platform is pretty good and relatively inexpensive to make it a decent track car. No need for expensive suspension kits, the stock platform works with simple/cheap mods. With the weight reduction and LS power, you will drive circles around my 440-6 Bee on a roadcourse. I'll be paying attention for sure. Again, glad to see you get the car driving and hope to see you at the track.
