Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Wanted to post pictures, but couldn't figure it out. Can anyone help.
If the 389 is a '65 or '66, it will bolt right in. The "D" port exhaust manifolds and the tranny will also bolt up. The pre '65 blocks used starters that bolted to the bell housing. Although the '64s had the provision for block mounted starters, they used the bellhousing mount.
