I spent some more time searching today, and came up with a Comp Cams roller cam that looks pretty close to what I think I want.
Here's the specs:

Thanks Dan! I'm a huge fan of Isky cams, and that's a really good one! But having a roller block, and lifters, I'd be silly to not try to use the components I have and stay with a roller cam.

Of course your logic is spot on Dan! I really enjoyed building the Falcon, and liked it to drive too. But in the end it was still a BBC powered Ford, and I am a Chevy guy!

Then the Chevy truck '55-'59, or Greebriar van axle would be a better choice. Both are just a little wider, and look better in a Tri 5 to me. Those mid 60's Greenbriar van axles are pretty tough to...

No reason an Econoline axle with drum brakes shouldn't stop extremely well! I put an Econoline axle in my '63 Falcon gasser with a BBC, and it would lock up all 4 wheels without power assist. Used a...

At 69 yrs. old, this will probably be my last full build. I'm doing a '35 Plymouth coupe for a neighbor now, and I'm not sure how focused I can remain on his car with my '39 calling for my attention!...

What's wrong with the axle that's in your '55? Looks like it should be fine if you go through and check kingpins, and tie rod ends. If it's all OK, I'd use it.

Thanks. When I had my '40 Chev I always wanted to find a '39 nose to put on it. Just thought the '39 grille was the best looking grille of all the old Chevs.

Yeah, that angled B pillar is a lot of work, but certainly makes a nice looking design. I'm pretty sure my build will be a much smaller budget than what i see in your picture! :)

I think when it comes to budget, there's not much you can build as reasonably as a gasser type car. There aren't a lot of "rules" about keeping things original. Original restorations cost big bucks...

At freeway speeds the air will be forced into the fan trying to slow it down, so if it's in front it should remain a pusher. As a puller the faster you go, the less cooling it will have with the...

I've found that the Northern brand radiators are a very good radiator, and priced pretty reasonably. I like the aluminum one with two 1" rows for good cooling.
