My best guess would be the 4.6 liter Northstar.

It's the same engine as your deVille, Ed.

I was not sure found a nice S&S 6 door in the right colors I'm thinking about. now if some one would go get it and move it closer I would do some swapping on a 67 with them. of course the key word is thinking I have found the 4.9 a vary good engine

Ed,
Hold off for a '96 or older. You will be glad you did.

If the engine is bad, they are not worth messing with. What is a good 4.9 today, might be a bad 4.9 tomorrow.

Would that S&S 6-door happen to be gold with a black top and black leather interior??

The blue interier is kind of a turn off. But the silver and neutral one is ok. But to let others in CW Coach had a number of 6 doors at low prices. If i was closer and could look them over I would most likely pick one up. But i need one that all the side glass goes down but is not heavy tinted with enough power to drag 9 people up and down the hills. I just have not found it yet. And getting them sight unseen has not proved productive.
