Small Block Chevy in a Ford

The hot-rodding scene has traditionally been dominated by the small block Chevy (SBC).  Not to be relegated to duty only among old GM models, it is also a popular engine swap in almost every pre-war make.  Some of this is due to the engines ubiquitous nature – millions of these motors exist and due to the massive aftermarket industry supporting them, they are relatively easy and inexpensive to get big power out of.  This is one of the reasons why the Fords of the 1930s that forego their flatheads are almost always seen wearing a Chevrolet bowtie under the bonnet.
