Chevrolet 283 V8 Engine

The Chevy 283 V8 was introduced in 1957 and used up through 1961. GM developed the engine by increasing the bore of the Chevy 265 V8 which was first produced in 1955. The 283 was manufactured with several different carburetor setups such as a single 2 barrel, a 4 barrel, a 2 x 4 barrel setup and an impressive fuel injected model. The fuel injected version of the 283 in 1957 that was used in the Corvette produced an amazing 1 horsepower per cubic inch which was almost unheard of at the time coming from a factory built engine.
