    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 ..

    forkin LIES , most of them were a full point or more lower than "advertised " for production motors , the Race motors were closer to spec

    there were a select few that were pretty close to the advertised numbers , especially the early 60's ones before the horsepower war .............. by mid 60's early 70's yes , they exaggerated greatly . Chrysler use to build some ODDBALL autos , that were mechanically different from the others in the line up . The '61 300G had the same LOOKING front fenders  as the newport   BUT they were 10 inches longer on the 300G , the rear leaf springs were some 3 inches longer , with 4 leather bucket seats , front ones that had 6 way electric and  swiveled out ,  a push button cast iron 727 with a p brake on the tail 2-4  brls sitting WAY out over the exhaust manifolds cast iron dual point dizzy with mechanical tach drive ( long shaft rb)  .. I owned one for some 20plus years . by 1962 the 300 lost much of those differences ... the special 300 era was pretty much over. yeah they had the 2 4's but NOT the long rams and used the same body pannels ........ same with the '66 barracuda S it WAS different , had the wide spaced 2 bolt lower ball joints , with discs ,  took the larger lug pattern , up swept exhaust manifolds
     ( sorta looked like BB ones  real sob to r/r plugs ) close ratio 4 speed , quick ration manual steering , ALL factory I owned one 3 years old , and found the "build sheet"  some of those things became standard on the 70's V8 dusters etc. Lug pattern / brakes
