I don't have them, but check Frank's Pontiac Parts.  I used them in the past without any problems.

.......its a 283 from a 58-62 chevy.....why on earth is this engine in the car?

Maybe it's what he had on hand at the time...or he preferred that particular SBC...hard to say; people have different reasons why they choose the powerplants they use.


does the 283 bolt right in and is the block similar to the 229?

Since 2nd gens came with a variety of engines, the subframes are drilled for nearly anything GM had to offer...from your original 6 cylinder to any SBC (like the current 283). An older engine like that may have required motor mount adapters (can't say for sure) but it obviously "bolted right in"  haha

General Discussion / Help with understanding this engine

My wife's father passed away about a year ago and he had a 1981 camaro that is now ours. Well finally getting settled into our house, I'm going to start fixing this car up and getting it to run right(he was a life long mechanic but many things are not working on the camaro)

First thing i looked up was the engine block number........its a 283 from a 58-62 chevy.....why on earth is this engine in the car?

looking at the VIN, it originally had a 229CI.

does the 283 bolt right in and is the block similar to the 229?

thank you in advance, its been years since i posted here and years since i sold my 79TA!

One could possibly exist, but over the 30 years I've that I've studied them, I've never actually seen one. Been fortunate enough to own 2 of the T-Top ones though.
