Chev 350 sump

My friend is building a Monaro and is looking for a sump. As I understand the sump has a dent in to clear the steering. If someone has a sump that I can copy that will also work

a Friend of mine did the Lexus engine swap on his Jeep Cherokee with the Lexus auto box and Spitronic management, it worked well.
