    You need a 187 oil pan. They came in late '60s early '70s big block C-body's.

    I would recommend fitting it before you paint it. On some cars you will have to trim or tent the pan for idle arm clearance on the outer edge of the arm. I have seen this were you never had to to do anything to the pan. It could be the way the pan is stamped out when made.
