Re: best engine for a 68 SS
whatever achieves your goal it is your car!
IMO the value of #s matching is gone, you can go for original with the date correct block to salvage as much of the value as possible for a #s car, you can put the big block in for the aww factor at car shows and drags and go original or modern, or you can go with the 383 for more modern power and maybe go with the current trend of pro touring (you could also do the pro touring with the big block)
it all depends on what you would like to achieve with your car. go in the direction that is what you want.
