what would give me the best performance without to much sacrifice on fuel consumption

...Proven 460 combos, and the build section on this site. From what I have read here, the "magic" 30+ MPG 460 combo isn't likely to happen (even 20 mpg is asking a lot). Past posts have me thinking that the mpg "adverage" seems to run around the 9 to 13 miles per gallon range, bigger mpg numbers seem to be hard to do without fuel injection. A light weight, all 'glass roadster would probably squirt down the road just fine with a basic mileage/towing 460 combo with D-3 heads. Don't know if this helps but you get a bump.

429

With a car that light, a well built 429 would probably give you more power than you could put to the ground with less fuel consumption than a bigger engine.

My suggestion:
429 shortblock
~10:1 compression
Edelbrock RPM heads
A hyd cam with 224/234 duration and 110-112 LS.
Edelbrock RPM intake

OR

If you have the budjet...why not a 429 with Boss heads. How cool would a 32 look with a Boss 429?
