Any opinions on what motor to run? At first I thought about a flatty but after talking with a few guys about it I think it is not a good option, plus I am going to run a full hood anyway. I hate to put a chevy motor in a ford but I can get locally a 283 with eveything and a freshly rebuilt for 1k...seems kind of hard to beat.

Depends on how much and how far yer gonna drive it. Man I would sure resist the urge to run a chev - no matter how much I like 283's. Every freakin' street rod in the world has a carburated sb under the hood, all dressed up with the same old shit they bought. A friend of mine just had a flattie built for his 37 pick up. 230horse power. Not bad for a original 80 horse engine. REALLY raises the cool factor. If your going to drive it a lot you should be able to find a real good, complete FI 302 for 1k. Or how about this [way out there] a late chrys fi/hemi. Before you laugh, the only non Ford engined car in the Ford museum in Dearborn is a '32 3 window with a 392 displayed as the consummate {–verb (used with object) to bring to a state of perfection; fulfill.} hot rod
A beyond cool coupe like that deserves the right thing. But in the end it's your car.........

I would like a flat head but how much did that 230 hp cost him? I really hope to drive this car a lot and reliability is key to that. I like the idea of a FI 302, I will look into that.

Flatheads are cool but don't seem real practical if it is going to be a driver. How about a nailhead?

That was going to be my suggestion...they're out there, not in huge demand, and you can still get all kinds of cool vintage and repop performance parts. Maybe a 50s Olds, or even an early Hemi if you can find one for a decent price. Anything but a small block Chevy, since as it was already said every "street rod" has a small block in it.
