Thank you both for the input. Going back later isn't about the headache. Its about having a running vehicle that will still do a little towing and can be used for parts runs while I have the originals on work stands/bench. I might pick something different along the way, such as the 258 with 4.0 heads. That said, I'm not sure what the transition(s) were from the 230 to the 258. I know the frame was lengthened, but didn't it stay the same width? Should I be able to just replace the necessary crossmember(s) (if necessary) for the appropriate mounts? Right now I'm in a research and planning phase. I know it can be a hassle, but I really have had a bad year with cars. I was ready to put for sale signs on both the panels. Time prevailed, and I realize I could have a running project cheaper than buying an unbeknownst project. Thanks again. Y'all have a good weekend
