"Jason, the odometer has 37K miles, but unfortunately I do not know the overall mileage,  The engine was renovated (.030 bore and .010 crank) in the early or mid 1980s and has definitely not had many miles after that. 137K?  Still no RMS…"

"Samu, Mixing the old colors with modern paint is done quite easily here. Check this place out: https://www.autocolorlibrary.com I have not used them but they showed up when I searched and it certainly seems like they would be very capable."

1963 Fire-Frost colors

HiThe original color of my 1963 Eldorado is Frost Silver. I can find the PPG and Dupont paint codes from the web, but at least here in Europe paint shops are not able to mix paint with those old codes.Could you advise me: are you able to mix the orginal colors in the USA or does someone know a modern reference color? I know that one option would be to use the paint chart chips, but I have not seen a chart which would have had the fire-frost chips.My car was repainted probably in the early…See More

1963 & 1965 Distributor

Posted by Martin McKercher on November 9, 2021 at 8:34pm 5 Comments

Hi all
I am looking to have an aftermarket distributor made for these year models.
I have fitted a Holley Sniper to my 63' 390 & want the Sniper to control the timing.

This is in the very early stages so I am looking to see if it is viable.
I understand the purists might see this as sacrilgious but the Sniper has made my car soo much better for me.
I am asking to see if there is any interest?
