I believe that 1962 was the first year of the 383 in a Chrysler. The 1962 Chrysler 300’s that came with a 383 CI engine had two barrel carburetors on them. Four barrel carburetors were not available on the 383 engine in a 300. They were available on other division cars like the Plymouth, Dodge and De Soto. The 1962 Chrysler Sport I got from Missouri was listed as a 383 CI engine. It turned out to be a 413 CI engine with a four barrel carburetor.
To check if you have a 383 or 413 is very easy Kai. The 383 engine identification is on the flat surface area on the passenger side of the engine between the fuel pump and alternator. It should read S 38 and have a date 11 22
On a 413 CI engine the identification is on a flat surface located on the front driver’s side of the engine in back of the power steering pump and under the A/C unit. It should read S41 with a date like 11 22 . If it is marked HP there then it is a High Performance.
As far as air filters, you can get a replacement from Auto Zone, NAPA or even MOPAR I believe.
Hope this helps and if you need any help, just send an email.
Last year I imported a 1962 Chrysler 300 sports convertible from California (black plate car) to Germany, Europe and this I my first message.
The car has a 383 engine with a single 4-barrel carburettor and a single air filter in the supposed to be original (?) black round housing.
The car runs and has a very good substance but will be restored over the years.
Concerning the air filter I have unexpected problems, because the German MOPAR-Shop told me there is only NOS and the costs would be 80$ something which is pretty high for a normal wear part.
The filter has a diameter of ~10 inches (25,3cm) and is approx.2,7 inches (6,8cm) high.
Guys, where do you get your filters from? I know there are several 62 non-letter-cars out there!
Maybe there is also a correct spare part from another American car company (Chevy, Ford, Pontiac…)
If some of the European members are reading this: a source of supply in Europe would be highly welcome (to avoid toll fees and comparatively high transport costs).
If anyone needs pictures I could send them.
