389 differential

Post by corvair500 »

What was the 389 used in ? FC ? I have one for 1964 but I think I would not want it in my car . May be good for drag racing !

Yes FCs used them. Not only were they heavier and less aerodynamic they came with taller tires that offset the gear ratio some. I've never calculated how much.

I had one in my 64 coupe with a 140 4bbl. 4-speed. Loved that car!
