Canadian Dodge Pickups

I have just purchased a 57 Canadian made, Dodge pickup which I plan to restore. The truck is equipped with a V8 engine. The Dodge truck history books say that engine should be a 315 (or 314.6 to be exact). However, I have a shop manual for the truck and it tells me it should be a 303 cubic inch engine. Were the 315's put in US made trucks and 303's in those made in Canada? The only 303 that I can find in mainstream Chrysler history books was in the 1956 Plymouth Fury. Is this the same engine as the 303 in Candian Dodge trucks? Will I have trouble finding parts for this engine? Any info would be appreciated.
