Default Re: Just bought a 1964 GMC truck, need motor

Actually a 383 and 350 trans installs pretty easily. You'll need some V-8 engine stands from the crossmember to the frame and a new transmission mount relocated for the trans length. Finally you'll probably need to have the driveshaft length changed. One thing to consider would be to find a GMC big block V-6 either 305 or 351 with the same trans and its adapter. Think that would be a real good combo. Just food for thought. Good luck and let us know how it goes.
