The rear brakes may be stuck because the parking brake has been on all those years and the cables are stuck. Do not try to pull the drums until they will turn freely. With the parking brake OFF try moving the flexible sections of each cable back near the rear brakes. Sometimes that will get the cabl...

Re: How to locate Vin Number on 360 sedan

"matching numbers" means nothing on a 360.
The VIN for a sedan is K111L-(4 or 5 digits)
The only thing that matches it is the title :lol:

Engine # is not important and is nothing like the VIN

"matching numbers" is in a class with "very rare"
and "less than 100 imported" :twisted:
