    Change ba 6 to v8 351

    There should definitely be enough room between the shock towers in a ba, they had to clear the heads on the 5.4 boss engines, and those mofos are wider than a 426 hemi

    If the cam has a 91da part number you should have the correct cam

    205 65 15's are a little narrower but they are the correct height if you wanted a cheaper tyre option for your snowies, (on my old xf I ran 205 65 15 on the front and 235 60 15 on the rear terrible photos I know bu they are the only ones I have of it)

    300 USA 6CYL

    Those truck engines have a v8 bellhousing, they have similar bore spacing to a clevo/windsor/ls so there are some that get around with a couple of cut up v8 head on them, they are a torque monster for what they are. I'll never forget when I was a kid one of my dads mates had an f350 with a tired 300 in it he rebuilt a mild 351 clevo for it and was disappointed with it enough afterwards that he sold the truck. The main reason I wouldn't use one in a falcon is they are as big (if not a little bigger) as a barra (I think other than wiring the barra is an easier swap). Also parts availability over here is not that great for them

    While the car wasn't actually 7/8th scale some of the things it had done to it were pure genius and probably more interesting http://www.dailysportscar.com/2016/01/24/the-infamous-and-incredible-1967-smokey-yunick-chevrolet-chevelle.html And another article, for some back story Doc Hudson in the Pixar movie cars is based on the Hudson's campaigned by smokey in the early 50s this article has a great story at the end of it about smokeys circumventing the rules with one of those cars https://www.hotrod.com/articles/ctrp-0801-smokey-yunick/
