54 Fleetwood--331 keep or dump?
- Inherited a tired but restorable 54 Fleetwood with matching #s that
ran "last time they tried it" it the mid 90's. My plan is total
rebuild with suspension/brake upgrades, engine upgrades, new interior
etc. Any opinions on how worth while it would be trying to rebuild
and upgrade the old 331/tranny (aftermarket parts?)vs dropping in a
big block and new tranny? My dream is to have the old girl look as
good (in her own way)and hold her own on the street with the
neighbors Bentley Continental. I would love to keep the old block but
am not sure it is worth the effort.
