That is one reason I drive Mopars....we have plenty of Mopar engines to go around and the packaging is so much better looking!!!...lol...just sayin!
I put a ford straight six in my 52 Willys pickup truck when the stock 4 banger stopped working. It was a give-away motor, and it worked great except for the lack of passenger floor boards ( and firewall) when we "got er done" to allow the falcon header to "fit". Made a great cab heater for cold Santa Cruz nights. Never liked the integral intake manifold though. That was a long time ago...
I think anyone who cross breeds a chevy in a ford or reverse is just an attention seeker good or bad and probably does other stuff to get attention also. I don't like those kinds of people.
