I have never cared for the short oil filters on my Mopar's so i did some reseach. I use Royal Purple oil filters so i did some research then contacted Royal Purple. The 30-8a filter will fit in place of the the 20-253 filter providing there's room for it as it is 1.67" longer. If you do not like there filters you can also search for a 1963 300 Base engine 7.0L 426ci to get the number for your preferred brand filter thats how i did it.

just be aware that later cars use a different thread size on their filters, and this fact often doesn't appear in supplier's catalogues........ you can end up with an issue if you screw off the original and drain the oil only to find you need the car to go and get a different filter to the one you intended to install! (NO! I'm not telling you how I discovered that)
