Pablo , according to the info in the Help section  under Engine  Unit  Decoding , that block was intended for Series 62 coupes and sedans  W/O air conditioning, but I would think you could just swap over your thermostat ass'y ,etc  for A/C if you need to. Jason or Russ would know for sure HTH.. 

As Robert indicated that engine is from a series 62. The biggest issue is it will have the Hydramatic crankshaft with the 3 3/16" raised mounting end for the Hydramatic drive plate. You need the 1964 429 with the Turbo Hydramatic crank with the 3" raised mounting area for the flexplate. If you get this engine you have 2 options.. swap cranks or have your flex plate enlarged to 3 3/16" to match the raised crank end. If you have it enlarged it has to be EXACT... any off center or looseness means it will sooner or later tear out... probably sooner from what I have observed over the years.

Dagnammit, I forgot about the different crankshafts  used in 64. Seems like I always forget something when  giving advice , much thanks Jason.  

Hey, You nailed the engine unit #, and I filled in the blanks. Teamwork!

Thank you Jason, but what do you mean 1964 49 , I’m looking at the chart and there is no 49 on the prefix. 

Missed a digit.. meant 429.  The engine size. Edited and corrected. Just to add have the seller pop down to bottom left of engine block and give you the VIN # and you can tell exactly which series 62 this came out of.

Hi everyone, ever since getting the car back on the road, the rear brakes grab when they are cold and I’m moving at slow speed.  Once I get along the road and stop they are fine. I see some posts…Continue

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures. I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent  wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…


Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment


Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
