    In 1973 E63 is the code for a 400 2 bbl. Up to 71 or so, it was also the code for the 383's. So, as the year is 1973, you have a 400; 383's ended around '71 Not sure what you were using to decode, links do not work.

      Agreed. Last year for the 383 was 71. It looks like they carried the E63 code over to the 400, which was the the replacement for the 383.

          The code E63 changed to 400 2bbl in 1971. In 1971 E65 was the code for 383 4bbl. I can't say this is true in all cases, but I have seen the E65 code in 71,with my own little peepers.
