Not sure what to tell ya... get the dimensions for the SB400 and also the Pontiac 400. Maybe have a drop base custom fabricated? Best bet would have been to use a Pontiac 400. By far a better engine than a chevy sb400...

I realise you'll probably never return, but what shaker, air-cleaner and hood setup is on it now, or previously, since it was also not original to a chev-engine Esprit.
