Performance Parts for 390 & 429 Caddy Engines
- Thanks to Bernard for posting this info on the MTS Message Board.
As far as I know there are no hot rod parts for the '63 390 and the
closely related '64-'67 429. This is a completely different engine
family from the '49-'62 Cad even though the '63 is 390 cu in too.
There were a lot of hot rod parts for the '49-'62 Cad engine back in
the day. This engine family along with the smaller & less
powerful '49 Olds was the first modern production(OHV) V-8, which
grew from 331 to 390 in its final '62 appearance, and was accordingly
extensively raced (until the small block Chevy made its appearance
in '55). Look at Ebay for Dual Quad manifolds, cams, heads etc. Also
