  1. all I can say is,wow! That is quite the engine in that car. You have inspired me with my engine swap of a 400ci into a 54 New Yorker. Mine will not be up to your standards but if you can squeeze that engine combo into the 60 New Yorker than I should be able to figure out how to get my combo squeezed in. Thanks Jim

  2. Hi,
    Very impressed with your cars and your work……

    Have recently bought a 1961 Windsor in reasonable condition, and with what I think is the original engine, but I’m having trouble identifying it….
    So far I can make out that the block was cast on the 8th of may ’61, 3 o’clock, dayshift, but I can not find the engine I.D.pad where it should be… Casting No. is 2128854-5 and underneath that it says L.L.
    Am I right in thinking that it should be a RB 383 “Golden Lion” engine?

    Is there any way I could get in contact with you?
    I need help finding the right parts suppliers (engine parts, leaf springs and shocks) and have a few questions about your Wilwood brake conversion and about lowering the front end 2″.
    I am btw an experienced (Harley) engine builder, and have so far built my own 3 Chevy engines (sorry) as well, so you wouldn’t be talking to a total idiot….

    Hope you are willing to help me on the right way, can’t find anybody in Holland who seems to know more about them than you…..My mailadres is Noorman13@hotmail.com

    Hope to hear from you……
    Alvast bedankt, Erik.

  3. I love your car. I Am curentlly working on a 1960 saratoga and am lookoing for a wiring harness. I love the fins and astro dome cluster panel! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I’d be interested to know about your headers – I have a 62 300 which I would like to put headers on. Tks, charles
