Keep looking. Waaaaayy too much trouble for you. Are you planning on upgrading the 383 to Multi-point fuel injection like your current Magnum? Those are just short of custom pieces for the 60's era 383. Major $$$. It's all do-able, but you're in deep just on the engine mods. You'd literally come out cheaper just spending that money on a stroker smallblock (can we say 402/406/408?). MUCH easier and possibly even cheaper than re-designing the truck to fit the big block and update that 383.
