Chevy 55 convertible
Hello there: Please let me know what is the best option to fit a 350 engine (year??? pre 87 or so…) with manual trasmision ( 6 shift on floor) , PS rack & pinion and new tilt steering column. Cheers from Jorge
Jorge, Thanks for your patience. Try a new Vortech crate engine from Chevrolet. It will bolt in using side motor mounts. CARS INC carries side motor mounts. Also try a TKO Tremec T56 transmission.
Any of the old 1958–87, 283–350 engines will bolt into your 1955 Chevrolet, however with the cost of rebuilding go with a new crate motor with better casting methods, more horsepower and better reliability.
