Making life hard for themselves. Those AMCs are heavy though have made half decent power, Just costs twice as much as a Chev or a Ford.
Many moons ago someone from the Warnambool area ran a Rambler [same engine?] in a Sprintcar which was a bit shorter in the stroke from factory to comply with then 366 limit. Though another tragic from that area also ran a Cleveland!! Forgotten his name but he was a dairy farmer with sponsorship from Passlow Ford of Warnambool.

There is/ was a forum with pictures of the cylinder heads the AMC Pro Stock gents used back in the day.
Amazing what true gear-heads can with a welder and grinder.
They won their fair share too.

The AMC V-8 was depending on sources, and the only only ones on line do not say whether figures are fully dressed or long block but a dressed one should be 25 pounds heavier than a dressed Chevy.
The Rambler/Nash engine is approx. 70 pounds heavier but has bore spacing of 4.75 and from what little information there is on line is tough as nails and responds well to a blower if you want to try something truly different.
