Mopar to bowtie question

Ok this my sound weird but I really miss my 383 I had in my 69 Roadrunner. (Heck I miss the whole car!!) I was thinking about doing something different when I need to do a rebuild. I was contimplating changing the motor to Mopar, I don't know if the 383 would even fit but maybe a 340 would. Does anyone have a chart on mopar motor sizes? The next problem would be trying to FIND a 383 someone would part with. The next question is does any one make an adaptor to hook a Mopar engine to a chevy 700r4 tranny? I don't think I can get a powerflight in the car.

Is this even feasable or have I been in the sun to long?

Regards
Mark

I dont' know for sure but.... how's the tan coming along?

J/K I've never heard an adaptor for dodge - chev trans but is it really worth all the extra adaptations, think of all the time you would have to spend working it in vs. buying a dodge to start with.

(but it would be neat to see)

My Two Cents

JD not a very good idea, first the jag came with GM type p/s a/c making them straight bolt up swaps cant get any easer. next I think the mopad stuff is wider making exaust hard to fit , possible pan problems, not to mention different length, I have never heard of GM to mopar trans adapter except HEMI to GM, hey if you like a challange try a HEMI in that thing. good luck

Yeah I'm going to stick with what I have in this, I think what I'm going to do is after this one is done look for a Dodge or Plymouth to play with. Maybe an old Dart or Duster..

I was reading an artical about chevy valve trains the other day and they said the small block has way more friction than the big block because of a design flaw. So thats why I was thinking Mopar, but not a good idea. A BBC won't fit in the Jag so it's back to the SBC. I love the way this car runs, it's like a poor mans vette. I'm just having to go back and correct the mistakes I keep finding they did durring the convertion.

Regards
Mark

Mopar

Jag Daddy. I can help you out some. Check with Brewer's. They may have a source for an adaptor the install a Mopar to a Chebby trans.

It just so happens I have a '73 Charger for sale. It currently has a rebuilt 383 in it. I would sell the car with the 383 in it or I will sell just the 383. If interested email me at william_n_66048@yahoo.com. I live in KS.
