Close enough.

The Continental Mark III, built from 1958-60, is widely regarded as the largest unibody car ever built.



C-10, the floor is yours.

OK, here we go.

Buick had an auto trans from 1948-52 called a Dynaflow.

What TWO tools are required to check and set the 'torque ball' drag?

Bonus question, (like there are prizes...right?) What is the specification- between what numbers- on this setting.

not really, but because of the generallity of the way I wrote the question last night, I have to give it to you... the answer I was looking for was Dec 20 1989.. Chrysler used the Kenosha plant to produce there Dodge Omni's and Plymouth Horizions from sometime in 1987- Dec 20 1989 when they stop'd making them..

1962 406 Ford has that bore, stroke, and compression ratio, but is a 6v (3-2's), not an 8v (2-4's). As far as I know, 2-4's weren't available until the 427 came out. But maybe I'm about to learn something.

That's my official guess. - '62 FoMoCo 406

Joe G I am looking at my 1963 Motors auto repair manual.It has 1962 two fours and 1963 three two,s.
It is under ford,thunderbird,edsel.Of course it,s just a book it could be wrong.
I am going to go ahead and give it to Nightrider.He was close enough and hasn,t had a turn yet.
Nightrider what,s your question?
