Obviouslly you know a 63 Imp is a big heavy car, it takes torque to get that mass moving...if it were me Id use a 350 or larger.
As far as stroker cranks go, I dont believe much is available first off, secondly, that would ruin the quick revs 283s are known for.
If you choose to build the 283, bore it what it needs obviously(boring an engine isnt a big power maker), stay conervative on camshaft & carb selection.
a set of steeper gears & an overdrive tranny would help overcome the small displacement.
