yes, cause if I remember right you can bore out a 283 to be something larger (forget the size ) and gain more due to the lighter crank and stuff. But I am far from a muscle car expert so I could be way wrong.

Thom got the engine. Been looking for one cheap for a while. Only want it for the crank.

327 + 283 crank = 302 that will rev to 9000RPM

His impala has a 327 in it....

He'* looking for a 396 and a early 60'* 2 dr Chevy II....

Fun times...

Nice find... I cant believe some younger members dont remember the 283. It was Stock in my 57 Belair. It had a little sister, a 265 cu.in.
