Sweet 57! - my first car was a '55 210.... My logic or stubborness on that carb decision depending on how you look at it is: The red pickup I have HAD a 305 in it for years - it's got a 406 now w the GMPP Ramjet MPFI on top that I had setup by AZ Speed - ( the ECU in those is very limited as to what you can do w em...) bigger injectors and a reflash since they are setup from GM for the 350. anyway - it's great - reliable etc - but sinking 2 pumps and rerouting / redoing all the lines isn't something I wanna clutter up this car with. I guess I'm gettin old! but since it came w a small block - it still has one - my 48 - it's got a flathead - 2 2bbls - reliable as all get out. plus - I can fix it on the side of the road - not so much the case if the pickup drops on me...(knock on wood)
My only thought w the Biscayne will be hood clearance with the carb - I was locked in on a BBC transplant then the engineering guy in me said : weight, mass, reliability, enormous potential! etc.. so that's where I'm headed. - I DO NOT want to run a cowl hood on this car I want it to be obnoxious, sound obnoxious but look sedate to the uninformed millenial in their Beemer or Mustang...Some fabbing will have to be done to get the LS to set under the stock hood...and not scrape the pan on the asphalt - may have to run Dry Sump ... we shall see...besides, I loooove to do things the hard way! ( ask anyone who knows me!) or maybe I'll just run those 30" rims w spinners and o ring tires and I wont have to worry abt it? - uhmmm...no!LOL


 Tim, There is a fella (KWHIZZ) on a different site that has swapped LS's into a few different cars, one of which was/is a '67 Biscayne, for a friend of his. From my recollection, no fabbing was needed, and the oilpan is a Holley 302-1 pan. Motor mount adaptor plates were also made up to raise the engine slightly to clear the front crossmember, designed for these conversions. KWHIZZ (Ken) also did an LS swap into his '66 Impala Convertible back in 2011, and has recently added an EDELBROCK E-FORCE supercharger...all of which resides under the stock hood. Running a carb may NOT likely run you as lucky with hood clearance tho, I can see that being a possibility.

Here is a link to Ken's '66 build thread:  http://www.yenko.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/455453/1

Looking forward to more photos and progress reports on the build.

Nice find Tim.  I just finished installing a/c from Classic Auto Air. Couldn't be happier. Looks good and blows 40 degree air from the vents.biggrin

I'd be interested in the original drive drain, if ya want to part with it.

Mike

Tim, Just realized the LS swap wasn't on a '67 Biscayne, but on a '65. Here's the link to that thread. (Not a carbed LS swap tho)
