As mentioned in the lead, small-block Chevys can still be found in the self-service junkyard. Usually you will find them in work trucks, and occasionally you will see them in G- and B-body cars. But we've been surprised to see several big-blocks lately. Head straight to the truck section, and you'll probably get lucky. This 454 is complete and looks pretty decent sitting in the engine compartment of a utility truck. As little as five years ago, you'd never have seen this. The engine would be long gone before the truck made it out to the yard. There were four other 454s the day we took this picture.
