WANTED: 390 cid for a 1963 Coupe DeVille

Hello all,

I was just wondering if anyone had, or knew of, a 390cid engine for a '63 Coupe Deville that was for sale. It basically needs to be a complete engine from the air cleaner down as the project I'm contemplating has nothing under the hood. A/C optioned engines are preferred. Would prefer one that was running when pulled but as I was a mechanic by trade it's not a deal breaker if it didn't run.

I know it's asking a lot from a new member but I know someone here can…

Introduction

Hi all,

Finally had a few minutes to sit in front of the computer and make a post. I guess I should start with a bit about myself. I'm 37 and live in wonderful Winnipeg, MB Canada. If you look at a map of North America I'm pretty smack dab on the middle of it all!

I'm currently negotiating with a fellow to try and obtain a 1963 Coupe DeVille he has sitting on his property. He started working on it but gave up as he has far too many projects on the go. If the dollars and cents…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

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

Hello!

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…

I just wanted to say a thank you to Kurt for steering me to the tech tips page on V.I.N. locations.  Excellent information.  Thanks a bundle.

V.I.N. where?

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 18, 2021 at 1:41pm 6 Comments

Where can I find the V.I.N. on a 63 convertible?  The usual space at the base of the interior windshield on the driver's side has been decimated by weather.

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 6 Comments

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob
