Default Small block v-8

Is anyone aware of small block V-8 being installed in a PT? I have done a quick search with no results. Thanks

One of the members is building one with a Hemi. See http://www.trickcruiser.com/customerprojects.html
He is selling the panel, and I seem to remember he had the Hemi listed at one point, too.

All the ones I've heard about place the V-8 lengthwise, not transversely - just for starters. New locations for motor mounts, supporting the transmission, a driveshaft, a driven rear axle,....
