Here are some pictures of my 63 Corvette with your 383 installed. The installation was easy and the motor is great. It started right up the way it came to me and I have been putting about a hundred miles a day on it. I was worried about hood clearance but as you said it turned out to clear it just fine. The car feels like a different car with all the power I had hoped for, plus the ability to run on pump gas without pinging. I appreciate that you guys delivered my motor on time and am happy with everything you did. If someone else has a sixties Corvette and is looking for an easy swap for the stock 327 this is a great choice.
