[FWDLK] re engine for 65 300L 4 s conv



 
    I finally found the build sheet for my 1965 300L 4 speed convertible. It was tucked in a top corner of the rear vertical back seat, hidden behind the rear cardboard cover. The tag was very fragile but I managed to pretty get it all out. I was then referring to Galen Govier reference book and found that engine code being 582 stands for 426 wedge with dual four barrel carbs, 425 HP, 12.5/1 compression.
Apparently, that engine in question is the max wedge engine with the cross rams that had special exhaust manifolds to get around the steering gear box, etc. I would be looking to getting any and all information regarding this engine.
    Now the question is, does anyone have one of those engines kicking around? Up to this find, I was trying to make up my mind if I should restore it or sell it in as is condition  but I now will have to rethink this very carefully. I wasn't even aware that this engine was available with that model of Mopar.
