Fist take off the caps lock.
You aren't getting much for $500.00.
You'd be better off spending that amount on a scooter.

I have abused plenty of those trannys, used to have an 84 Z28 Crossfire. The recent modifications and upgrades 30spline, etc etc have made them very durable. You can't beat the over drive and roadability...that is as long as it is built correctly. Yet you know GM...you never know if you just might get a bad egg

Let me know how the 383 works out powering your '63... Since the 305 gave out in my '64 Impala, I've been hesitant to make a call on exactly which SBC would be best to replace it. In these heavy old cars, it seems like the engine choice affects the entire power equation of the car more dramatically (the 305, for example, just couldn't hack it) and I could really use your input. Good luck with the tranny!
