I have a 29 chevy 2dr sedan. I'm thinking about putting either 383 or 400 but which one? Also what tranny and rear gear would be good for either engine? This car will be a cruiser.

You can't go wrong with either one, these motors put out alot of torque so I would go with a 9" and a tall set of gears like a 3.50.
Good Luck

Though both engines are fine,I would go with
the 383.It's just better.(and easier to find
parts for than a 400).
A ford 9" is great,but a 12 bolt chevy with
3.73 gears will get you moving great.
For a tranny try a th700r4.The overdrive is
cool and you won't hear any "i can't drive a
stick" whining.
Good luck!
