I'm  approaching final assembly on a 140 P/G engine for my '66 4 dr.
that will  have the A/C reinstalled eventually. I have an option of using
the original  oil pan or a deep aluminum one. I don't intend to lower the
oil pickup if I  go to the Aluminum one.

The deep pan is not likely to be neeeded in your 4-dr PG car. The added  
benefit of the larger sump - as either a bigger heat sink or an increased  
reservoir for you to ignore checking your oil (grin) is lost if you dont drop  the 
pick-up near the bottom. Well - You might retain some of the heat sink  
properties with an extra quart, but that's about all.
