Here is a picture of my 460 in an "A" coupe. I built the frame so fitment wasn't an issue, it is, however 8" longer than stock and the radiator is shifted 4" forward of the front crossmember. This photo is before the changes to the motor this spring. Good luck, I originally modified the stock frame to accept the bigger motor/trans but would have lost to much leg room so decided not to go that route. Running hood and fenders will be tough but not impossible.

Thank you, it has been a labour of love. I really like the bed as well, I was trying to do something different as most people do a spray in box liner and I feel like you have this shiny truck and a black spray in liner, I feel like they missed it so to speak but to each their own.

Hi A Bomb, i have mounted the engine & trans, it looks like i will have to recess the firewall 6" to 7" inches ? the seat can go back 6" so leg room might be ok, i am using a uni steer setup so i dont have to worry about squeezing a steering box in there.
i have had the bonnet & side skirts on & pipe clearance looks ok, a bit tight on the front 2 cylinders so i might have to reduce the primary header pipes from 2" down to 1"7/8, only problem i have come across is alternator mounting position, lower mount will hit side skirts, i will look for a high mount or fabricate something.
