"I had a Holley Sniper fitted to my 63 390 & I love it! It has smoothed the engine a lot. I have just had a distributor made so the Sniper can control timing, I won't have this installed until early in the new year"

1963 & 1965 Distributor

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?See More

Map Light

Mine is a meta air vent like grating, which just does not look right for a map light.

Thanks in advance.  Rick

Upgrades for the Coupe de Ville

Posted by Kurt on December 24, 2021 at 6:00pm 4 Comments

At long last I finally have power vent windows! I started collecting the parts 3 years ago. The one thing I could not find until recently is the 6 button driver's switch.

center bolt size for crankshaft pulley

Posted by Dan Norris on December 6, 2021 at 3:13pm 2 Comments

I need to pull my distributor, and still have the cork in the end of the crankshaft. What is the bolt size needed to thread a bolt in there to be able to turn the motor over with a pull handle and socket to get it to TDC exactly before I pull the distributor out?
