That has been brought up before. Sorry, it won't fit the H-body chassis, unless you perform the mods like you would to any stock SBC oil pan.

Oil pans aren't hard to modify. Maybe I should start making them and selling them on here.

The oil pan from the Monza fit fine. I was afraid of some bumps on it but the engine sits in there nice. I'm waiting for the driveshaft to be shortened and some other stuff before I get to try and start it. If you can make pans I'm sure you could sell some. The aftermarket pans are ridiculously high. I also bought a B & M Z gate shifter but it wouldn't fit. I had to modify the old shifter that doesn't have a knob. All sorts of little problems but getting there. If you modify oil pans I'll look out for them as I want to build another one some time in the future.

No, that pan will not fit. If it is not specifically for a H body chassis it won't fit. Here's Jegs listing, it says will not fit Monza.
