I put a 350 Chevy with a Power-Glide 2 speed transmission in my '78 wagon 33 years ago, 32 years ago I made it a 2 door wagon hence 2 series 8 cylinder 3 door/SD. I have put 325k miles on it since. It drives and handles fine with suspension up grades, lowered 2", custom rear 1" sway bar, Koni shocks, cross drilled rotors,205/14/70 front tires, 215/14/70 rear tires. With the first motor [370 HP] and the 3.90 gears it would run the 1/4 mile in 12.9 seconds. I changed the first motor after 200k miles, wore it out. The new motor makes 350HP and I run 3,31 gears now, much calmer on the highway. I'm very happy with the car still.
