If I remember correctly an 83 "G" body used a 2004r trans which is the same length at the 72 350 turbo, but the mount is way back on the rear so your crossmember won't fit. The trannys will not direct swap as the belhousings are different. Motor and frame mounts are completely different, as are ALL brackets, exhaust parts and cooling system. If the motor from the 72 is carbed, it is probably a 229, not a 4.3 and they are turds from the start.
