1958 ford f100 engine swap

hey everyone
I was looking into buyin a 1958 ford f100 2wd with standard bed... it has a 391 in it right now fresh rebuild but my research shows the 391 is pretty much crap if you want to do any performance upgrades.. so i was wondering what v8 would be an easy swap? 351? I would like to swap my 390 in there but sounds like its hard... also need to link up a new transmission, can't tell you whats in it right now, but i know its manual. let me know what you guys think.
Thanks!

391 cu in and it needs 'performance mods' ? But a fresh rebuild would be worth a couple grand anyways...... How fast you planning to go? I'm not trying to be a jerk, I'm just old. Probably like your grandpas age. Oh and welcome to the 57-60 fridge club. We like all fridges and pictures too.....
