Poll: Which engine powers your 67-72?

Just think it may be a cool poll. We are seeing quite a few LS swaps and am wondering about the numbers

Got the original 350 in mine. Would love to swap in a big block though!

Factory original 350, with 4 bolt mains. I think those were standard for trucks

Re: Poll: Which engine powers your 67-72?

Is there a better engine out there than the 350 small block?

Re: Poll: Which engine powers your 67-72?

So many sbc's ...., build a 292 with all the goodies .

Whatever you use save that engine you pulled even the 250 has gained value in a very short time .

LS1/4l60e in the '67 Panel Truck.
250 I6/S-10 5 speed OD in the Green '67 (soon to be a 292)
327/TH400 in the '68 CST/Custom Camper
350/NV4500 5 speed OD in the '72 Dually
350/TH350 in the '70 Longhorn 4x4

You have to have a variation in driving experiences....

Re: Poll: Which engine powers your 67-72?

Boog, that's just school to us and we already graduated. People who call it old school are new school. Now we teach the young...if they'll let us

I guess diesel swaps get mixed in with the last option on the list
