So you want to install the 265 cu in (4,340 cc) V8? Sure you can do this, you really won't or don't need help you can check pricing, along with interchange items via the internet! very easy..This is a little be of research not very much, spring rates, motor mounts, all the changes from 6 cylinder to V8 But really for '54 first gen to 56 things are basic and grade you can just about mount the 265 in there and be Ok , IT might weight less than the 6 cylinder! Or i can offer you a '57 belair 283.. Regards
