Building a 283 into a 302 or 327

Thank you all for the input. I guess I should have stated this is a 65 Nova and I want to use an original block for appearances. In case you weren't aware, the oil filter is cut higher into the block, and there is a threaded hole in the side of the block where the clutch ball for the z rod goes. So a 350 is out. It really doesn't matter to me what size I end up with. I can bore it .060 and use what I have with new pistons. I'm not going to thrash it; I'm really just after the original look. So, bore it .060 over and stay with all the stock internal lower end?
