welcome to the forum


i thought that the 383 RB engine was made in the early-mid sixties in canada because of their taxes on bigger engines

the RB engine came out in the early sixties

The rarest of the "Lions" is a 390 Hp model that was exported to be the power plant in French Facel-Vegas, if you can believe that.

Golden Lion is not a model name. I think it just refers to what Chrysler called some of their engines in the late 50s-early 60s; 361-383-413.

All models, Newport, Windsor, Saratoga, New Yorker had Golden Lion Engines during that period.

What could make it more rare than other coveted Mopars from that period: accessories/options and lack of rust.

Check out "Mopar380"s website http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/category-view.asp
It covers those years and the people on the forum can provide all the infomation that you can handle.

The machined pad should be stamped 38 for 383 or 41 for 413 if I remember correctly. as my 426 wedge was stamped 42.
