I recently sold a rebuilt one but if you’re in need of cores, I have both 5-main and 9-main in the Classified Ads of my Packard / IMPERIAL page linked below. Unfortunately none specifically coded on the engine number (the only place where it makes any difference) for 1953.

Just check the engine number to see which it is based on the list that BigKev provided. If it starts with some other letter, then it’s not a 1953 engine in it currently but it should be the L4XXXX type.

The best I can do is to supply a core for a 1951 which is the same 327 5-main engine but this particular one had solid lifters and needs a full rebuild. It probably isn't what you want but I sold the only rebuilt one I had some time ago.
