Hey Kevin thanks for the welcome, nice Fleetwood I think mine's original interior was the same color as your interior. I will add some photos of mine as soon as I figure how to. The area I live has a pretty active classic car scene as you can see on the Cruisin Times Website that List all the action in my area. I have always wanted to see Australia how is the car culture in your area?

where do I find a new and better motor?

Posted by john kilbourne on May 24, 2018 at 11:43am 9 Comments

My '64 convert is getting better, but the engine remains questionable. Starts and runs well enough, powerful, but I think I hear a main bearing banging, the balance is not great and I'd like to upgrade to fuel injection if I can.

Are there dependable remans available of good quality? Are new crate engines available? Will more advanced engines from newer years fit?

Also, please, the diff ratio is quite high, lots of RPMs compared to today's cars. Are there diffs with lower…
