The stone-stock 383 two-barrel big-block is all original, including the aluminum-body, single-point, Prestolite distributor-complete with hinge-top lubrication tea cup. Rated at 270 hp, the 383 was the step-up option over the Polara's base, 230hp, poly-head 318. Any big-block convertible is worth saving. Dig the factory-original, light-blue engine paint. They're only original once, folks!
