Default U/S or U/SA

Is this class something worth looking into?

Depends on what your looking for. If your building a stick v-8 plan on spending just as much as an A car for the rear end, transmission and clutch if you want it to live and have fun. Trust me I ate parts with a 273 before putting good quality parts in it. He automatic will be a lot more cost friendly.

I think the stick would be more fun, but the bellhousing area just may be too expensive in time and money. How many cars are running in U/S or U/SA at most events now?

Tom,
Browell could make one. All they would need is an old bellhousing. Also you would need to call them as their website does not list everything that they offer.

With a six cylinder you're not required to have a scattershield.
