Loc: Freeport IL USA
Leaving IL on US 36, traveling through MO, KS then moving north in CO to Loveland. Got relatives in Loveland, planning on staying there a few days. Going to tour the Rocky Mountain Nat Park. Then we are heading north through WY on our way to the Black Hills in SD. Planning on spending a day or 2 there, before heading home on US 20 through SD, IA and back to Freeport IL.

16 days, 2200 miles, 7 States, in the coupe! We are intending on staying on two lane highways, and only traveling about 5 hours a day. If there is something we want to see along the way, we intend to stop. We are leaving home May 28. No time restraints other then being home on Monday June 13 for work.
Its been 25 years since we have taken a 2 week vacation! Gene

Before you make a final choice on engine location you might want to install the front end with the core support and check the relative location to the radiator core. Pic below shows my 360 in relation to the firewall and, in this position, the centerline of the water pump shaft is way low in the radiator core.

The headers are Hedman 79540-6. Passenger side fits without dents but the drivers side is close to the steering shaft so it's dented a little. Wouldn't be necessary if the engine sat higher.

I haven't had much time to tinker here but I did chop rack end of Dakota steering column and adapted to Plaza column housing so I could use the spring loaded bearing of the shaft which I like that idea. Now I need to get shafts to adapt together so I can keep stock wheel inside car.

Plaza got the front clip back on for a bit to see where I need to trim front Dakota frame horns to clear sheet metal so it will line up again.
The wheels are center of wheel opening...whooopie!!

Here you go, it is 4" c-channel, I wanted it to be bolted in so any fine tuning the body guy needs to they can shim either at sway bar bracket and center bracket like factory. Kinda like how sway bar tuck's inside it.

Thinking of boxing in bracket I welded to c-channel on engine side, what do you think?
