Default street fighter 383

1975 tangled with 1968 chevy chevelle 427 for 200 bucks.jumped this cat off the line by a car lenght and he couldn,t catch me.this was one mad dude. he said there ain,t no way a 383 would beat a 427,but i collected the cash that night.a 383 tuned right with the right set up is a formidable advisary.

Maybe neither. Back in 73 my 69 383/4 speed/3.23 gear Charger was never beat in a street race. With Gabriel Air shocks and M/T "J60" x 15 rear tires the car would hook like you wouldn't believe. Bring tach up to 2500 rpm,
side step clutch and nail it, bang second at 6000 and 99% of the time race was over. Very seldom had to use third gear. Beat 427's, 440's, any engine Camero or Mustang.
But remember, this was street racing. I'm sure if I had went to strip car would have bogged like no tomorrow.
Even took Dad one night, he just shook his head and said don't tell your Mom!

383's are the working man's wepon of choice backin the day. Being produced by the millions, it was easy to get one and easy to work them up into a stout street fighter. Most people had to make due with a 383 and they did, very well.

High reving, high HP making, OX strong long living engines they were and still can be.
