kind of a crazy question.. but olds 307

my girlfriend and I are building a new rig, and her mom has got this late 70s early 80s Buick 4 door thats been sitting in the garage for a couple years. The motor is pretty much brand new, and i started wondering if that 307 would mate up to a th350. i know the 307 has around 140 hp and 225 lbs of torque, so it wouldnt be that bad of a motor. not to mention, it'd be free. i'm thinkin about buyin a blazer or similar with a blown motor and hacking it down and making a truggy and throwing that 307 in. is there any reason why i shouldnt? my girlfriend's going to be driving this thing too, and i dont really want something super powerful that she can grenade everything that moves under the truck with.

You can mate it to a th350 as long as you get one with the right bellhousing pattern. That may be a chevy engine, at some point they did away with the BOP engines and started using chevy engines in everything. If it is a chevy you can just find a standard th350, if not you can get a BOP th350 and swap the output shaft to mate it to a t-case. You can also use an adapter to mate a BOP engine to a chevy tranny.

bop plates are great. the motor mounts are still ticking me off, and you'll probably have the same problem if you use a truck after '81 if the car is pre-79...
