your going to have to see a chassis shop, and get a funny car chassis made., and then a lift off body to fit the BIG BLOCK in, if you only want 12-13secs fit a windsor 351 stroked to 406ci, this will fit in alot easier, and built right will run 10s, with alot less mods

I think it might be a little bit of a squeeze.
