Just a thought.....

My bro -inlaw had a 69 Chevy Truck same type as yours and It had a 283 engine with same rear end as yours and he claims it liked the high rpms
and ran like a Champ (Burnrubber and Fast)
without using alot of fuel
What is your fuel mileage now and you can put dual exhaust and headers on the 250-6 engine if u dont have already
or put a 700r4 Tranny in it and overdrive will drop down some of your rpms
Or put tall tires on it
