    It could have been a 210 that had the Bel Air aluminum inserts added on the rear quarters. I do believe Sierra Gold/Adobe Beige was available on a 210.

    An LQ4 will be cheaper simply because it's from an older model year. LQ9 and L92 among others are candidates too, as well as LS2 and LS3. Keep an open mind on all those as you look at used engines.

    That pan will fit but the sump is rather deep and won't have ground clearance, especially on a lowered car.

    Instead use the Holley 302-1 pan or the clone of it from TSP.
