Why not just look for one with a transplanted 350 with modern day components ?
Even if you find one that has a 350, but it has a carb, you could convert it using pieces from a junk yard.
Cars from that era had horrible aerodynamics, but a large portion was due to the underbody.
You could probably drop the drag down quite a bit with a stealth belly-pan and still have the classic look of the car.
