I'm thinking "Frankenstein"! <grin>
Why not go ahead with the complete 67 donor motor, then tart it up to look  
like a 1960 on top? You can still run headers with the gas heater. Run the  
lower shrouds, but with the doors removed so the hot air will exit out the 
back.  If you want it to look like a 1960 on top, let me know, I have a 
bunch of the  1960 filters, as I recall. You will still have to work out the 
fake-choke  arrangement on the top. Remember, there is a fine line between  
Frankenstein's monster and Steve Austin, the $6 million man!  - Seth  Emerson

I'm  preparing to turn my '60 engine into a "64 110".  I've always wanted 
to  try a Corvair with headers and this is my chance.  I'm going to use the  
original block, and have a set of '64 110 heads.  So, by using them the  
choke situation is rectified and I can use the '64 air cleaner set-up.  I  
already found out I'll have to "re-engineer" the carb cross shaft as i'm using  
the '60 fan set-up.  Since my heat comes from a gas heater, I won't have  to 
worry about the lower shrouds either.  I have a very low miles '67 110  
donor parts engine for the cam, crank, rods, & pistons.  I decided to  use the 
'64 and up air cleaner because I can't seem to find any paper '60 air  
filters.  My question is this: has any of you done a hop up mod like  this?  If 
so, what would be any pitfalls or things to look out for.   Thank you for 
your thoughts and  opinions.
