That's going to be a sweet ride. I always was fond of the V8 Vega swaps back in the day, and then the S10 SBC swaps as well.
Fred Beamer with the '65 Flat window Chevy 90 SWB 'Vette 327/Glide van was the V8 Vega culprit as well. Always finding the weak points. I think he did 3, including a Vega wagon. I witnessed him twist out a rear end, heads up he saw in the rear view someone speeding down the alley, he avoided a rear end collision by flat footing it and dumping the clutch, rear end tore out and the car was toast.
Good times. $250 dollar Tri-Fives, '65 Impalas, Panels, Vans, building all kinds of motorcycles, Yamaha Bog bikes, dirt bikes, trikes, Honda 305's, on up to Mach 3 500's.
A Chevy Astro van with a V8 350/350 old school powerplant will be awesome!
Good Wrenching. Old School!!
