Re: 67' 250 6-cylinder, 3 speed on the floor...
Sounds like a great find !
Since you asked, my personal opinion would be to leave it original. I have found that the number of modified cars of the era FAR outweigh the original, surviving cars. 6 cyl, or 8 cyl really wouldn't matter to me. Original=original, and original=history. I have an original, and won't touch it unless putting a date coded part back on it. I am having fun searching for dated parts of the era. I didn't go out looking for an original, just happened to stumble upon one. What I had wanted was a 1st Gen Camaro that I could dump my 427 into and build it all up, and after I found this particular car, just couldn't bring myself to do it. I am currently looking for another 1st Gen that is not original so I can "soup it up".
But like everyone says...it's your car and you have to do what YOU want. If you do put the BB in it, just like the reply above states, just don't cut it up, so you can put it back if you ever wanted to sell it to someone who wants it original.
It's only original once. Have fun with it !!!
My 2 cents.
