    Well alot of members are aware that I'm parts gathering for the 68 barracuda I just rescued well I've found a 383 out of a 67 dart gts with a casting date 1/28 of 1967 I haven't checked for a vin but i don't believe id find any but I'm only looking to trade this block for one that's a closer match to my build date of 10/31/67

    Here's a couple pics as you can see on the drivers side there's no center ear

    Once I get it home ill work on getting the crank and rods out and take it to my machinist and have him go thru it. But my plans are to do a period correct restoration on my barracuda and if no one's comes forward ill use this block in my project.

    I would use it, but i guess it's worth a try.
    Is it standard bore?
    Pretty rare piece.
