    I think that any 59- 66 Electra or Invicta will fit. They shouldn't be that tough to find

    You need a 4brl. intake from a 401/425. If you are still using the DynaFlow you will need a carb, from a '61-'63 401/425 to be able to easily hook up the trans. downshift/switchpitch linkage. A Rochester 4GC will be the easiest to find. An AFB would give more/better performance.
