    I looked into putting an early 354 Chrysler Hemi into a 67 Barracuda. Talked to people that did it. Not an easy fit and definitely not worth it for me. I cant imagine what it would take to get one in an early A.

    Highly doubt it.

    I do have a set of poly headers for a d100. :)

      I know someone who has a 62' Lancer that is Poly- powered and a very nice car if he lets me get and show pics I will.

          Me too, but I like to put it in the form of a question. I love Polys, I just would not put one in an early A.

            If I happen to find a early B body to buy that has a Poly, it will stay in there for sure.

            There is a guy here in town with a 64 Coronet and whenever he takes it to the cruise-in there are always folks admiring the Poly engine. (including me) He's got it dressed up with nice aluminum valve covers and an aluminum two four barrel intake that was on it when he bought the car in 1979. You just don't see that many of them these days so they are cool again.

              Agreed if you already have a low deck Dodge Hemi....I have one also.

              With out a doubt it would be neat.....but alot of work and way more money.

              I have a low deck Dodge Hemi and an early 392 Hemi and a Poly motor myself....but I have 340 in my early A.
