Been a long time since I built this kit, but if I remeber correctly, it had a decent 454?

I have one of the Baldwin Chevelle's (minus headers) engines if your interested.

The 1/24 '39 Chevys from Monogram have 'em too. Any induction you're looking for?

Thanks Erik, Bill, I've got both of those. Haven't decided on induction yet. though the '39 blower set up is cool.

It all depends on what kind of big block Chevy you're after, but here's my thoughts:

 

** Any of the newer Revell '69 Camaros - Yenko, Motion, etc. can provide a nice stockish BBC(the Motion '70 Chevelle too)

 

** The above mentioned 3-in-1 Revell '70 Chevelle has a great blower setup as an option

I know ! Lol !

However , the motor is a bit " large " and will look right at home in your 1/24 th scale engine bay !

Ok, here's what I'm up to, some derivatives to the original Monogram '55 Badman.

This kit was built by Dave McGowan http://www.showrods..../badman_iv.html

 

I've seen one done with the Monogram '53. I can't find one of those but started thinking maybe something else, maybe a '56 or a '57 and why not get the engine correct this time , 396 cu. in. ?

For a 1/24 big block Chevy, I would go with the engine from the Monogram '70 Chevelle SS. The '66 Malibu (Chevelle) SS has a nice engine, but it has a plate on the front. I used the '70 engine, '66 valve covers and the kit blower in this "Badman" '55.

P.S. I like your idea! How about a newer model Chevy as a "Badman"? Maybe a '70 Chevelle itself?
