Modifications: '68 Corvette Front sub frame, GM 12 bolt rear end with leaf springs and shocks, Converted cab to 3 window, scratchbuilt receiver hitch, modernized interior, added power brakes from '68 Corvette, used rad from vette and added '32 ford electric cooling fan, Used nascar Basic engine, added '66 Nova Weiand valve covers, parts box pulleys and Intake as well as carb and air cleaner, used AMT '90 C1500 Exhaust manifolds, Parts box open rallyes (thinking MPC '75 Vette), lots more I forget.
Based on what I'd love to have ( my own shop and a '50 Chev for a shop truck), so I made everything to my taste, modern Suspension, drivetrain, and interior, Classic Body Styling. And no I wouldn't be too worried about how the body looks, just as long as it performed well. So in 1:1 I would do a IFS swap, yep there'd be a 355 CI Stroker under the hood (In scale it looks like a 355 in reality when stroked it's closer to 383 CI, but it's not seen in scale, differences are internal).
