OOH, nice! When I was in middle school, my dream vehicle was a pro-street 1955 Chevy pickup. One of those 56's sounds like a good destination for that 427 to me. If that flathead 6 isn't stuck, I think I'd be partial to keeping that in it, but it's your project of course!I'll for sure start a thread on the dodge. Hopefully as soon as I get done building our house the dodge will be the next project. I have 2 1956 Chevy pickups to play with to. One is a big window short bed and the other is a small window long bed. They don't have a family connection like the dodge does so it will come first.
