Re: '69 307 + 3 speed trans engine
Agree with Garth, not a desirable engine, to say the least - 307 is a stroked 283 - 283 block with a 327 crankshaft/stroke.
As I remember, a gas hog, even with 2-bbl carb, maybe 12-14 mpg.
The three speed manual, at least it is a manual, and a last resort, something to fill the void between the engine and driveshaft.
Might do better to hold out for a 350.
