    I did this to my 54 coupe years ago.The box fits fine and the sidemount blower has to be recessed into the inner fender by dimpling
    the area.Steve

    The problem is getting the blower mounted low enough to clear the hood. Here's Scott Hall's Speedster (with a '53 front clip). R2 carb hat...



    The right inner fender is modified just a little.

    Yes it has been done. I believe you would need to use the Avanti "short" motor mounts.

    Jeff Rice has a pic of one in his Webshots album here:

    And I'm pretty sure Bob Petersons chopped coupe has an R3 box.

    I've seen other examples over the years, so it's definitely possible.
