Where do I get this V8 conversion kit?

Where do I get a kit. I looked through Clark's, but it looks like they do not have kits, just a few random parts.

That's Arch Evans' kit. As far as I know, they don't have any of his parts, only a few Crown and Kelmark parts but no complete kits.

502 BBC in the back seat with the suspension (front & rear) and transaxle strength to handle the power.

One of the coolest features is the recessed foot well...the #1 complaint from Crown owners is not enough leg room. cool smiley

That's Sealer... car was a driver... next was disassembly and paint / upholstery
