That 302 is not going to make you happy in a 250, not enough mule power.

If gas mileage is a concern,consider a 150 with the 302 or 300---

If mileage is not a big concern pick the fanciest one with what ever engine it has.

I would compare a 302 vs 351 to a 283 to a 327 or 305 to a 350 now the 307 was a strong little engine and tough.

351 is, in my observably history, a stronger power plant.

Many of the Ford 351 Windsors were 4 bolt mains as compared to most of the Chevy Truck 350s being 2 bolt.

I would go with the the 351 Cleveland if you can find one the 351 Windsor was a wimp to me. The Cleveland was more like a good ole 327 instead of a 350. I don't blame you, I would go Ford now days also, I never thought I would say that.

Man I type slow.

For some reason the Windsor just didn't have the power I expected, sorta like the 350.
