You are correct. My brother had 2 both 67's. The RT had the 327. The Z had a 302. Edited to add the following year the 283 became a 302 for the reason of lower compression ratio to run on lo-lead or no lead gasoline. The 327 became the 350. The original 302 Z had it's toughest rival in the 400 CI Chevy. The stock 302 (Zs) had more ventilated heads and longer cams prior to the 68 low compression ratio, but commonly confused with, 302s. Edited again to change 289 to 283. OMG that's almost sacrilege.
Link Posted: 2/28/2002 4:21:32 PM EDT
Chevy took the 283's crankshaft and put it in the 327's block, added heads from the Corvette's 327, a Holley four-barrel and a high-rise manifold, and voil-the resulting 302-cubic-inch V-8, rated at a conservative 290 horsepower at 5800 rpm...

Yeah, I was kind of wondering about that 289 thing, Halfcocked..... I thought Chevy came with the 302 in order to stay under some racing body's cubic inch size restriction. Something about staying under 5.0 cubic liters, with is about 305 cubic inches. They also built 307s which were essentially a 327 crank in a 283 block. These were usually dogs, though, and I suspect were more to just use up old parts.

67, 8, 9 Z-28 302 was for all intents and purposes a Vette 327 375HP with a shorter stroke. Those things would REALLY rev!! Lousy torque but a screamer at big R's! 2.02 intake valves, Aluminum Hi-rise, Holley, solid cam. Small journal in 67, large after. Later ones had guide plate heads - all had "O" rockers. They were delivered from the factory with the headers uncorked!! Somebody had a sense of humor! All were 4 spd, many had disk brakes in rear. 4 piston same as Vette until 69. Ahhhhh, the memories!

Having had a couple back then, the low compression follow-on to the 283 was called a "307" inch engine. A 327 crankshaft in a 283 bore block. The "302" was a 327 block with a 283 crank. There was no comparison between the two engines. 307 was a low-rpm torque motor. 302 was Heaven.

302 in a Camaro? I thought the 302 was a Ford engine and that Chevy/GM used 305s.

Arock hit it right on the head. Because of the way these were put together you got higher RPMs a lot faster. FWIW-- Ford also made their own version of the 302. Anybody remember the Boss 302 Mustang??

DONR, do you remember the Boss 429?? At least you could change the sparkplugs on the Boss 302. Boss 429 motor had to be unbolted from the motor mounts and jacked-over to get to the rear plugs. One of the many reasons we ran....... . . . . . wait for it..... . . . . . . . . Chevys!!!

302 C.I. = 4.948 cubic liters SCCA Trans Am rules permitted an engine no LARGER than 5.00 cubic liters which is 305.115 C.I. The actual CID of the 302 was 301.592 CID (assuming a perfect 3.000in stroke and a perfect 4.000in bore) For anyone who cares, the way to find the true CID of an eight cylinder engine, the formula is bore x stroke x stroke x 2(pi). For a 6 cly or a 4 cyl, you use 1.5(pi) for the 6 and 1(pi) for the 4. Have a nice day! :)

Just to speak as to how tough those little Chev Z-28 motors are, I helped do a roller conversion on an original DZ302 (the 1969 Z-28 motor) With a roller cam (original dimensions), roller lifters, and roller rockers, that motor made 408 HP at 8700 RPM!!! Not bad for an engine that was well over 30 years old.

One of my old drinking buddies had a '69 Z/28 with the original DZ 302 in it. With a mild roller cam, some carb and ignition work, and a set of Hooker Headers it would twist 8500 anytime you wanted to. He had 4.88 gears in the back and a set of sticky McCrearys on the back and it was an absolute blast to drive. It pulled mid-hi 12's at the track in street trim. Those were the days-then I got married.

The Dodge answer to the RR was the Super Bee. The only exclusive "RR" engine was a slightly hopped 383. Chrysler, unlike other companies, installed essentially stock, non-special (other than cam, exhaust, intake/carb) engines in their performance cars. By this I mean that a 1969 383 RR engine had exactly the same head castings as a 440 Six Pack engine, as were used on a 383 2bbl in a Plymouth Fury. Cranks, blocks, head castings were standard stuff. Of course, valve springs, cams, carbs, intakes, exhaust manifolds, and other "bolt on" stuff were special and were the only real difference. One exception is 440 Six Pack crank shafts and connecting rods. The advantage to this is your average poor shmo could lift a 440 out of a New Yorker, throw in a cam and external bolt-ons, and have a genuine high perf setup. Chevy had crap heads on their mundane engines as did Ford, and as for cranks and rods, well, NOBODY built regular old engines as stoutly as did Chrysler. Today this means no hunting around for special (expensive) "double hump" or "angle plug" Chevy heads, just slap on any old 1968-1973 head and you're pretty much there with a Mopar big block. All rods are incredibly strong and all crank shafts through 1971 were forged (not cast). Each brand had its advantages, and Mopar's advantage was its engines.

Wolf, small world my friend. My first car was a 68 with the 250 straight 6. Only difference was my car had the manual 3 speed. It didn't last long in the car before it was yanked out and replaced with a small block V8. I guess the old man knew what he was doing though. Start me out with a 6cyl and once I proved myself, dropped a V8 in it. I thought it was unfair at the time because he had a 70 LS5 Chevelle....

265 and 283 had same crankshaft dimensions. 283 had larger bore. 302 was a 327 block with a 283 crank. Had one car with a 265 engine. A 1956 Chevy 150 sedan. Stripped it down to the bone. Jacked WAAAY up. Light. Straight front axle. 5.12 gears. 265 had 2x4 barrels off a 283 Vette, cam, Power-Pak heads, 12.5:1, fender well headers, close-ratio 2.20 Muncie etc. Raced it around Texas in the mid-60's. Most fun times were at Caddo Mills, Green Valley, Cedar Hill, and Little River. Caddo Mills was unbelievable...old WW2 airstrip where we ran 6 at a time and the flagman looked for the safest gap to stand. Pit fights were legendary. If only my kids could do stuff like that.

You beat me to it! My dad had a 68 Coronet R/T. It was B-5 blue, and one of only 17 ever built (he ordered it this way) with the Hemi option, Bench seat, and Torqueflite trans with COLUMN shift rather then the usual split with console. That was the true family car/sleeper. He said my mom used to drive it..I couldn't even imagine that. I just remember those big ass round marker lights in the fenders. Kewl!!!! Someday, I WILL have one. That is one of my life goals. My mom bought a 67 Firebird from a guy in 1980 for $300 (I was 10 yrs old). It was gold with gold interior, black vinyl top, 327 2bbl, and mint with 27,000 miles. No rust anywhere, even had the factory hub cabs yet. I was supposed to get it when I got my DL. I slammed the door shut one summer when it was really hot and it broke the drivers side window. Us being very poor at the time, she didn't have money to fix it so she sold it...for $300.

Hehehe... my first job was at an auto parts store!! BTW, lots of people used to think the "M" engine meant Milwaukee. The Windsor engines were very similar to the 289/302, the Clevelands were somewhat like the 390/428 (if my memory is correct) and the "M" engine had a 400ci cousin. My personal Ford favorites were the Boss 429 and the ultra rare 427 SOHC. Still, I'd take a good old Chrysler 426 Hemi any day! The Hemi was to muscle car engines as the Barret M82A1 is to rifles.

Yeah, I remember the 302 CID Z-28's... I test-drove a '69 with the 4-wheel discs. I did end up with a '70 Boss 302 (which I managed to keep, and still own today). The (stock) Z28 and Boss 302 were both rated at a conservative 290 BHP from the factory, no doubt to confuse the EPA and insurance scrutineers of the day. The Z-28 was faster off the line due to the Ford's oversized cylinder head porting. The engines were 302 CID to keep them within the 5-litre displacement limit set forth by the SCCA as a prerequisite for homologation. Ironically, Mopar (both Plymouth and Dodge) didn't have production engines that small, but were permitted to de-stroke to meet the requirements. A friend of mine's brother was on the pit crew of Buffalo State Teachers College race team, which ran a Competition Orange full-chat '69 Z... I had fun going with them to the Trans Am race at Watkins Glen (can you say, "Pit Pass?"), perhaps in 1970?? Maybe '71... Too bad my pics are slides... wish I could share them here.

I turned around and left. What was I supposed to do... I was to meet friends at a not-predetermined campsite. It would have been fun trying to find them in the dark. I DID go back to the track the following day. When I left after the race, someone had knocked my new bike over onto a BMW within the "secure" bike compound, breaking off the sparkplug on one of the cylinders.

I wish it was!! The AAR belongs to a friend of mine, and is absolutely cherry. Over restored, better than new. My current project is a 1970 Charger R/T, but I haven't done anything on it in a while. The plan is to cosmetically restore it, but with a very hopped 440. Most of the hard work is done, but it still needs body work, paint and interior. It "should" run in the high 11's, and possibly into the 10's with nitrous. The engine has already run 10.92 in my recently sold race car with no juice and a single 4bbl carb. I really should get back on it and finish the damn thing - I miss driving cars with way too much horsepower!!! I guess once I finally have enough guns and stuff I'll redirect finances back to it. For now it sits safely in my garage, in a zillion pieces.... Here's a better pic of the Cuda though: [img]www.ar15.com/members/albums/gus%2FAarcuda%2Ejpg[/img]

Here are the ingredients on how to build a truly cool one. 327 small journal two bolt main block 283 forged crank from a corvette "pink" connecting rods shotpeened and polished stock valves with z-28 springs and keepers in 327 heads, mild porting only. stock 1.5/1 stamped steel rocker arms with the slots opened up a little... stock pushrods shotpeened and polished TRW forged "pop up" pistons with drilled oil passages secret grind ISKY solid lifter cam and lifters, offenhauser two four barrel tunnel ram intake with two 650 holleys on top with velocity stacks, vertex magneto ignition. All of this will give you a 302 CI chevy engine that pulls down 11,000 rpm and 600 hp. If anyone wants the exact specs I'll get them from my dad, he built this engine and used it to drag race a 55 chevy back in the 70's, I have a few pictures of the car pulling the front tires 3 feet off the ground.
