I bought a Cadillac Coupe De Ville of 1965.
Now to register it here in Italy I need all its technical data!
Is there an internet site or a book or someone that can tell me this technical data, please?

The car is the model 68357.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Thanks a lot DAVESMED!
The site that you have told me has a good material, but not all.
I need the specifications: max speed, gear type and ratio, measurements of lenght, volume..., weight, cubid capacity, HP power, transmission, tires type, etc. ...

Thank you very much at all for the kindness!

Max Speed: Not sure on this one, anyone know whats redline on a 429? also need to know gearing.
Gear type: Do you have air conditioning? 3.21:1 if you do. If not, the 3.21 is optional, and the 2.97 is std. Controlled differental is optional.
Legnth: 224 inches
Wheelbase: 129.5 inches
Weight: 4480 lbs
Engine displacement: 429 cid
HP (gross): 340
Torque: 480 ft-lbs
Compression: 10.5:1 (use good gas)
Transmission: 3 spd automatic, model TH400
Tires: there probably not the original tires (i hope not) so you will have to read the sidewalls

DaveSmed, thank you very much!
The tires are original, I'm sure :rolleyes2 but for them there's no problem: I have already their code.

But, only for security, if you know, is there a book with all technical data of Cadillacs, so, if in the future I need again these specifications I can read them on book?
