  • 259 engine

    I recently rebuilt a fullflow 259 and would like to know what year/engine I have. The number on the block is VK329. I could not find it listed in the tech portion. Thanks, Chet

    VK329

    V=259 CID V8
    K=built in October
    3=1963
    29=29th Day

    So in other words, you have a 259 that was manufactured on Oct. 29, 1963

        This is correct, but to clarify, this is a 1964 model year engine.

            A 259cu.in. 1964 model CAR engine.

            1960 Larkvertible V8
            1958 Provincial wagon
            1953 Commander coupe

            No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
