  1. Wow, that one disappeared overnight. heres the new one https://www.nhtsa.gov/vin-decoder and the categories are depicted here/best I can find at the minute..
  2. This is supposed to be a decoder... hhttps://vpic.nhtsa.dot.gov/decoder/Decoder
  3. That one is 4084. Can anyone get the other two numbers?
  4. You may not have a Dana 60 rear axle
  5. RS2182 was the engine in a 1963 R-3808.
  6. The Caprice had a 700-R4, made for good gas mileage. It has a 3.06 first gear ratio. Axle ratios for them started at 2.73 which gave higher highway speeds with low engine rpm. The downside of using them with a higher geared axle is that 1st gear is 0-15mph, then an abrupt (to say the least) shift to 2nd. You cannot start out in 2nd gear... The 200-4R, developed later, has more normal ratios, something like a 2.56 first gear and is much more comfortable to use, so your axle would likely be around 3.31 - 3:54
  7. Regardless of the type, the transmissions dictated the axle ratio
  8. Here's what Dr. Google says: The Automatic overdrive transmissions were designed for axles like this..
  9. Does this look like one? It's in a 63.
