I, for one, have no plan, nor see any reason, to convert "The Beast" back to a Cleveland from it's current SBC. 
The small block revs like crazy, generates allot of smooth power and helps the weight distribution. I wouldn't dare take my 351c to the rpms the sbc regularly lives at.
Not only that, but if I keep having troubles with the 351c in The Winged Warrior I may convert to an LS crate motor.
For a model that has been heavily modified from it's inception I don't see the conversion to a modern engine as blasphemy.
