If it's 1960 make sure and specify it's an RB 383 1960 not B 383

Just FYI

I just rebuilt my RB 383 much rarer motor :D

Hi Mike,

No this is early 383 B block , 350 361 383 400 , the RB 383 was the later engine same as the 440

So this is a B block 383 with engine number on right under distributor ,8 bolt threaded crank flange ,it originally came out of a Facel vega with cast iron torqueflite,

Thanks Paul.

i need a 383 but i guess shipping would be the killer and as i need a t-flite and 8.3/4 axle too buying a parts car is probably cheaper.

Unfortunately i don't have the money. Would be nice to have one engine as spare. And sid, i'm pretty sure shipping is cheaper than from the US...?

yes, but i need a transmission and axle too, so a parts car is the way to go. buying and shipping a transmission and axle separately from the US is going to cost more than a complete car and since i have to buy a parts car anyway, it makes no sense to ship an engine from the UK.

Update on engine , had to use the rods and rocker shafts on my 350 , so engine can be split for parts if anyone needs anything ,

Sid and Nikolas if you want to club together and get someone to collect it may be better for you both ? Does not seem to be the interest over here anymore and rather it go to someone who can use it , than it go in the scrap pile i can keep it here for a while for you.

Paul.

you mean you parted a genuine 383 hp to fix a 350 okay, anyway, yes if you have something for sale let me (us) know. but you are not going to throw away a 1960 hp383 block, do you?

Hi Sid,

Rods are same part number as my 350 , just was easier to take the full set of rods and use them as 2 of my 350 ones are out of round due to spun bearings , so there are 6 good rods with it and I cannot find my rocker shafts as engine been in bits 4 years ,

I know what you're saying but over here this is just a worthless lump of scrap iron , that's why I would sooner give it away than send to scrap , it's not in way at moment , but cannot keep the stuff forever ,

Paul.
