352 with 300 hp would be nice, a 390 with 335 hp or more would be great

Response to what big block


My reference point for the 352 is my experience as a passenger in a 1959 full size Ford wagon with a "Thunderbird" 352/300. It moved that car with ease, and would push you back into the seat when it kicked down into passing mode. It was a beast, and the car was heavy.

A 390 would be just that much more fun. My family had a '64 with the small motor, and it was a mere shadow of what that '59 was.
