I would go with the Pontiac 400... they have lots of tourq to pull the big cars..the best ones I found were late 60s early 70s..the big cars..

we run a buick lesabre, with a healthy 350 and we were a top six car.

We run a 455. it weighs a little more than the small blocks, but it has a lot more power. I thought it would make the car push of the track in the corners, but it handled like a pro. we ran a 307 at first and it was $hi+.

Go 455! Ive got one in a 74 malibu, and it pulls awesome..the torque is amazing. The 455 buick is the lightest of the big your car shouldnt push like a freight train. Ive won many raced with my 455 on tacky tracks against high dollar stroker small go with the 455.
