1954 Ford delivery wagon- engine swap?

I'm looking at a 54 ford delivery wagon, it is rough, I want to rat rod it, but would like reliability for the drivetrain. I'm not familiar at all what would swap into this without little to no modifications. I've read some drop newer 4.6L into older trucks for the EFI and modern comforts. Would that work? Are there any swaps that just bolt up? Thank you for the help.

Nothing is easy or cheap.Motor and trans mounts will have to be made,Drive shaft will need to be made,if you go with a fuel injected motor you will need a tank with high presure pump,then there is wire and ,computors to run the injected motor,plus lights, brakes,and every thing else to have a safe running truck.There are no bolt up options.Even for a rat rood you will neeed to spend may hours and a bucket of $ to make it work.But we all can"t wait to do it again.
