Need help to identify a straight 8

We have a customer who insists he has a '53 263 engine. We need to order parts for it but it has a 3.095 bore which suggests a well worn 248. The engine serial number is 56678394. Can anyone tell me where to go to find out about this engine. Thanks roly

Some of it is in the BCA judging manual (but it does contain errors):


Here are a few others you can use:

Buick Master Chassis Parts Book (usually available on ebay)

"The Buick - A Complete History" by Terry B. Dunham and Lawrence R. Gustin

"The Standard Catalog of Buick" by John Gunnel (contains errors)

"The Serial Number Book for U.S. Cars 1900-1975" by Grace Brigham (contains errors)

Branham Automobile Reference Book
