I finally got my new 80 Malibu home, and to my surprise it had the 229 Chevy v6. I was expecting the 231 buick. Anyway, this engine is a small block missing 2 cylinders. It has all the accessories up front to swap right to the small block. How could I not just go small block instead of the big block I planned? But my question is, will a victor jr with a 1" spacer fit under the stock hood? It has a really bad 2" fiberglass cowl hood on it that needs to go. SO I was thinking either stock, or a 2" steel hood

The Bowtie Victor Jr. is an inch shorter than the Victor Jr. It will fit under a stock hood without a spacer. ( 1/2 inch spacer at most ) The Victor Jr. is too tall for a stock hood. My experience is with a 1 inch drop base with a 3 inch air filter.

Small block with Vic. Jr. fits under stock hood on mine. Since this pic was taken i have added a 1/2 spacer with no fitment issues.
