(newbie here)  I'm Pss'n off my bowtie buds with this project, so I am hoping I'll get a little support from the Mopar guys Wink  Here's the details:
- Base car: 1941 Chevy Special Deluxe 4 door, very little rust through (Wyoming car), interior shot, wiring shot, already got rid of the stove bolt 6 and the car is mostly disassembled.
- Theme: Make it a Street/highway rod with kind of a 50s gangster look.  
- Engine: 360 Mopar stroked with 4" crank and bored .030 to make it a 408.  R/T heads(early LA compatable type), Six-Pak manafold with Demons.... Don't have any other specifics yet.
- Tranny: 727 Torqueflight.
- Suspension: Undecided
I got a 360 (to build up) with a 727 and 4X4 transfer case that came out of an '87 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Will be getting rid of the transfer case and adding the 2wd tail piece and possibly an overdrive unit.  

I'll be posting some tech questions in the tech section.  Just wanted to introduce myself

FlyinS, Welcome to the sight. It's kind of cool to hear of someone putting a Mopar in a Chev, it's usually the other way around. Anyway, welcome to the sight, and if you have any comments/questions, just post 'em.  

Some people are like Slinkys; they're not very useful, but fun to watch when pushed down the stairs.

Thanks for the welcome.  I've always been partial to Mopars.  You're right, Chevy guys are always putting Chevy engines in everything but when I tell them I'm putting a Mopar in a Chevy you should hear them whine!Grin  

By the way; where can I get some good info on setting up and adjusting a 6 pack on a small block Mopar?

As far as the project, sounds cool. Too bad you couldn't find a Mopar body, but at least you'll have a fast and reliable Chevy thanks to the drive train!

As far as Six-Pack tuning, call the guys at Promax in Indianapolis. They know their stuff.
