[tcb] What size engine for the '59?

I just got off the phone with Ronnie in AZ. I ordered my belly pans and bumpers 
and we discussed the kind of engine I'd be putting in the Bus. I told him I'd 
like to stay as close to stock as possible. I plan on using the split case 
tranny and was thinking of rebuilding the engine that came with it (not 
original).
He said that a 36 horse with counter weighted crank and increased compression 
ratio could be a nice runner. 3600 RPM all day long.
The one in there now is a single port but that's all I know about it. Even 
though I have a "Slow Moving Vehicle" magnetic sticker for the back, the 
thought of only going 50mph scares me.
Thoughts?
Thanks!
