New guy here, thought you might be interested in my V8 powered early model Corvairs. I have a 1964 Monza convertible with a Chris Craft reverse rotation 327" mounted in back, been driving it for 7 years with no problems . 327 has aluminum Edelbrock cyl heads.

Super cool man! How does the handling compare to the stock 6? Does that additional weight make it even more tail happy or is it not as bad as you'd think?

I'll row my own, thanks!

WOW!
I love them both.
If your l@@kin' for a project?
There is a '61 Greenbrier van
on E Bay for short money.
Right now it's $1250.00
With a lot of work it would
make a wicked
mid engined draggin' wagon.
