Wikipedia describes this engine as the last in a line of Ford Y Block engines built between 1952 and 1963. Early engines seem to have been designed to use in both Ford and Lincoln heavy trucks with engine capacity and horsepower increasing steadily through 1955 – 57 when the engine appears to have been devoted exclusively to Lincoln and Mercury cars.
Topping out with the 368 cu in (6 litre), the engine produced up to 300 horsepower with a maximum torque of over 400 ft lbs.

Dale Delauw would like to see his father in law’s 1964 Chrysler Windsor restored to running condition.
The car is a 2 door hard top with a 383 cu. in. “big block” engine and one of the classic Chrysler push button automatic transmissions.
Father in law, Jeff Marks, has been a High River resident for many years, so perhaps you have seen this car in its better days being driven around town.
The pictures Dale provided suggest that the restoration could have its challenges and unfortunately Jeff’s health means that he isn’t up to the task.
If you can help Dale source parts for the Chrysler, then please call his at 403-336-4074 or contact him by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
