Hello everyone.  I just bought somewhat on accident a 1974 Satellite.  I didn't think I'd hit the reserve on ebay and well, I did.  It's a 318 car.  So my first question is what would it take to put a 440 in?  There are a lot on craigslist in my area from late 60's models to 78's.  What is required, which will be easiest??  I am completely new to this.

Anyways here's what I got for $6800 (copied description, I have not picked up yet).  Let me know what you think, what suggestions you have for it, or even any info you think may be useful- I will be searching many forums for the next few days
