1963 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible
Used 1963 Cadillac Series 62 79,855 miles, White
CadillacÃ¢s sole engine for its 1963 model line was its 390-cu.in. V-8. This engine had a compression ratio of 10.25:1, utilized hydraulic valve lifters and received its fuel mixture via a Rochester four-barrel carburetor, with Cadillac rating the engine at 325 horsepower. The engine in this Series 62 is said to be original to the car, although no mention is made of any rebuild history. A cold start requires pumping the throttle three times at least once before the engine fires, per the seller, who adds that produces no smoke while its idle smooths out. The Hydra-Matic four-speed automatic transmissionÃ¢s functionality is described as Ã¢perfect,Ã¢ and powertrain leaks are said to be limited to a drop from the transmission when the car is parked for long periods. The engine bay is stock and acceptably clean, with surface corrosion limited to the exhaust manifolds.
