That's really cool! Gary... Now, what wrecking yard did you say you found this 'Hemi' in? how many more are there? (o; he he he...
I had a Hemi once, It was a 55 model 354 with a dual quad set-up. The Hemi sat for 30+ years in a broken crate, under an olive tree at my father in laws ranch. Needless to say it was all frozen up, lifters were covered in sludge, but it was all there carburetors to oil pan. I had to trade it away for the Poly and trans. that is in my wagon now. Congratulations on acquiring your Hemi, in sure you'll have lots of fun putting it together. And it will look good between the fenders of your 64 Savoy!

I came home with a new powerplant for the 64 Savoy this weekend. It's a 1966 Hemi with 559 heads. Since it's a 66 model there's no VIN number, therefore no guilt trip about contacting the original owner. No , I've never owned a Hemi before but there always a first time for everything. I may need some help along the way fitting this thing into the Savoy. I assume some modification will need to be made to the shock tower and I'm interested in what mounts are used. Here's some pics:
