Congratulations on your find! 1962 was a gorgeous year. Before taking the motor apart, check the distributor cap for cracks, wires, and plugs. Old time ignition systems didn't throw much spark and age only makes it worse.

If you want to buy one, check with [email protected]. He's always found what I needed at a good price. If yours was recently running, you could probably have it rebuilt locally for a good price.
