Since a V8 was an optional engine for your car, look for a donor Monte Carlo with the engine you want.

try a 350, should fit right in.you could also go to a nice 327 which would also fit.you may have to change your gearing and trans. Any chev motor up to & including the big blocks would do the job but u may have to change a few things to match the extra power (maybe motor mounts ,tranny and rear end) u can get most o this stuff from any wrecking yard. I found that the chev motors are the best and easiest to work on and get at .I've done 3 motor swaps over my car days and they all turned out fine.
