This was back in the day. I spun a main bearing after street racing a friend with a
66 Fairlane Convertible (and WINNING). The landlord hated me but this was an
Opportune time for an upgrade. What went in was another 383 but it was a 4-bbl
With better heads. Basically a re-ring 1969 vintage 383 from a Dodge Charger.
This engine was totally stock but it ran GREAT. That night, after getting the engine
in, I put about 200 miles on it locally and then made a 500 mile trip to see my Dad
In Pennsylvania. Cool thing is, the trip was completely uneventful, the car was a
Blast to drive.
