I understand the sentimental value of keeping and using the 440. If it were me, I'd look for a decent A body from 1967-1976 with a solid body but no drivetrain and build the 440 into a 500 stroker, and using a built 727, and maybe a Strange S60 with 3.54 gears, toss them into a 3,000 lb. car. You'd have a hell of a street rocket and tire-frier! I think that'd be the best bang for your buck, plus not to mention the fun factor. Hot streetcar, car show cruiser, and occasional trips to the strip.

There's a guy on Facebook that did a Magnum with a 340 V8. I believe the group is Dodge Magnum Owners. I think the car was painted green. Obviously a smaller engine than a 440, but they could probably tell you what they did to get old school Mopar to work under the hood of a Modern Maggie. I'm a former Magnum R/T owner. They are special cars. Best of luck!

The old LA small block engines are a lot closer in size to the newer 5.7, 6.1 & 6.4 Hemis than a 440 is.

I have serious doubts about a old-school B/RB engine working in any of the LX/LD/LC cars.
