Re: Australian Assembled 1962 Phoenix Engine Size?



62 cars could have had a 318, 361, 383 or 413 for v8 engines. I'll look at my parts book to see if there is a way you can tell by the serial number.

Subject: Australian Assembled 1962 Phoenix Engine Size?

Folks,

Can anyone shed some light on the size of engines which were installed in Australian assembled SD2 1962 Dodge Phoenix? I understand there were 400 cars assembled from imported knocked down kits in the Chrysler plant at Tonsley Park, Adelaide.

Everything I have read says that they all had 318 Poly engines. 

However, I had a broken engine mount repaired last week. The workshop guy insists that this car originally had a 383. The standard engine mounts would not fit, but the mounts from a Valiant slant 6 fitted perfectly. He could see signs of the cross member having been reworked and the engine is slightly off centre. He is convinced that the original 383 engine has been taken out and substituted with a 318 poly, with engine mounts modified to suit.

Just curious.
