When I bought told it was original 327 but the D on block suggest it be a 283. The intake is edelbrock and carb is Carter Super Petformance 4 Barrel. Why put that carb on 283?

If anyone could say if this engine, trans, match close in time with the car I think it be all stock I've asked others but like response from here thanks everyone.

Everything lines up fine. Body was built 3rd week of January and engine/trans were both built January 8th. That's a good time frame. Rear axle code is stamped on front passengers side of rear axle tube.

Engine suffix code D is a 283 with powerglide.

Warren are the code placement different from 63 to 64? I looked on mine forever until I found it on the front of the drivers side tube on my '64. I kept looking on the passenger side.

Some one on the assembly line didn't know his right from his left. GM's assembly manual states stamp it on the passenger side tube (left side). But if you weren't aware that left and right is determined by you facing the front of the car then right and left are meaningless. Which is why I state passenger side or drivers side which never changes provided you don't leave North America or buy an import made for off shore consumption. (the British Empire which covered the globe taught the rest of the world to drive on the "wrong" side of the road based upon rules of nautical navigation).

Well... except for in Aussie land, etc.

Now the left hand bank of the engine is another story. Which side do you think it is?

It's on the front of the passenger side axle tube. Sometimes, they are stamped very lightly, but they're there.

Tom,
Indeed they are stamped on the front of the passenger side axle tube. Except my '64 has the stamping on the front of the drivers side tube. Also has some odd "R" stamp on the passenger side. Take a look at the axle stamp pictures in my share site. Quite different than usual.

Hey Dave, I'm sure you will agree that a car has a front and a back, just as you do. And as you also have a left and a right side, (determined by your front and back) so does a car, regardless of where it was made or how you're looking at it.
If I was standing in front of you and you picked up something with your right hand, it would still be your right hand wouldn't it?. Using your perspective, are all of our LH drive cars really RH drive cars?
