    Love them Motors manuals. Our local library has several.

    Also loved it when Chryslers only had big blocks. 1971 was the first year a LA motor (360) was offered in a Chrysler.

    the LA360 is a member of the chrysler corps LA small blocks family , it was not in the full size autos untill then ( 71?) but used in the compacts since the 273 in 1964 , it as an L/A ran 273 318 340 then 360 when it replaced the 383 in full size autos as the " base" engine . Prior to the L/A it was a 318 POLY head , and found in midsized and up autos/trucks .   It,  as a 273 was also found in some sunbeam tigers around '64-5 IIRC . note the large drop in compression over the years ..

    Awesome compression ratios back in the 60's. Just awesome!
