I can help you over those hurdles. One, yes you will have a different belhousing but you already have one on this motor, and a transmission, so you're laughing; two, for aftermarket supplies look up PolySuperPac and find headers, shiny valve covers, camshafts and good stories; and three, I vote for you keeping the GM guys whining a little longer.
I have been saving pre-1962 Chrysler V-8 belhousings so I can outfit an early Hemi or an early Poly. Here is my six-pack intake for a Poly with Stromberg WW's, [the red intake]. Coolness can just bubble off a Poly.
Thanks MM, but the guy just wants too much for it. All his stuff is coming up in an auction next June, I might just go then and buy it for what it's worth.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Those are cool looking motors. I've been to a lot of car shows and think I've only seen 3 or 4 over the years and most people don't have a clue what they are! Nice motor if you can pick one up cheap and are looking for something really different!
