Can a 327 cu in (5.36 L) V8 be placed on a 1964 Chevy II Nova SS frame?

Asked by Aug 16, 2017 at 04:48 PM about the 1964 Chevrolet Nova

Question type: Car Customization

Looking for information concerning the differences in weight between the 194
cu in (3.18 L) I6 & the 327 cu in (5.36 L) V8.  Wondering if the stock frame,
suspension, tie-rods, etc would support the larger block.

Yes. The 327 was an original choice in 65. In 64 it was a 283 which has the same dimensions as the 327.

The V8 might be a 100 or so pounds heavier which is no big deal. Aluminum parts will save weight and you can change out the front springs if it sags.
