Final Answer


Besides the ignition and cooling system, you will need an engine mount matching the V8 to the El Camino chassis, you will be needing a new transmission and an new differential. The first thing you need to do is to search the Internet about this type of conversion. Some people I know put a 350 with 387 crank kit in it.
