Your transmission has more than one gear, do you know which gear is bad? Or is it the clutch (what the pedal pushes to disengage the transmission from the engine while moving to change gears or at a stop to keep from stalling the engine)?

I have never seen a carburetor like that one but I would recommend buying a rebuild kit for it and servicing it before reattaching to the manifold and air cleaner.

OK sounds like the transmission is completely shot. My recommendation would be to find a good used unit and replace it instead of trying to rebuild your current unit. I am not sure what will fit your car but most transmissions from the 61-63 from the Holden full size cars should be compatible. I would just be sure that it bolts up to the in-line 6 cylinder engine.

Actually even the U.S. the 62 Impala had the 235 In-Line 6 cylinder engine as its starting base engine. It would appear that you have the 235 CI engine. I believe any parts even from America should fit your engine.

Best places to try would be from Australia or might try South Africa. On the engine parts you might try JC Whitney Auto Parts & Auto Accessories - Car, Truck, Jeep, Motorcycle, VW, RV & ATV - Aftermarket Parts & Accessories RockAuto Auto Parts or even a local auto parts store in your area. If you have access to a local junk, salvage, recycling yard that buys old cars and sells parts to other people in your area it might pay off to try them.

I just tried to find you a Holden Impala Forum and the first two that showed up on the search engine is our forum here. The only actual Holden forum was for V-8's only. I sure wish I had access to more of Holden's information for your car.

Yes yours is the 235 Cubic Inches (American terms) engine, that is what the 235, 305, 350, 455 etc. stand for. Your 3860cc stands for Cubic Centimeters is the Metric version.

When looking for engine parts look for with in a couple of years of your engine to match up.

General Motors aka Chevrolet made the U.S. version of the Impala. Holden of Australia built the Impala in Australia under license from General Motors of the U.S.. Sadly I know there are some differences between them, like the windshield wipers and which side the drivers controls are on, at this moment I am not sure what other differences the cars have.

Just a 5 cubic inch difference between the two. Not sure how to tell them apart but most likely nothing to worry about. I am guessing that the crankshaft will be the deciding factor between the two engines. Most things you will be replacing should interchange easily.

BTW my information shows that the 1962 Impala came with the 235, not the 230 engine. http://www.impalaforums.com/resource...58-2011-a.html

This is part of the text from the article:
In 1962 the option of the Super Sport was available on only the two-door coupe and convertible. However, the SS models in 1962 could have any engine from the standard 235 ci six to the 409 big block V-8. (Impala SS engine options included the 235ci 135hp I-6, 283ci 170hp V-8, 327ci 250 V-8, 327ci 300 V-8, 409ci 380hp V-8 and the 409ci 409hp V-8.) Horsepower ratings on the 409 ci V-8’s were upped to 380 on the single four barrel and 409 on the 2 x 4 barrel. The heavy duty mechanical items of the 1961 Super Sport option (HD springs, shocks, brake linings, etc.) were deleted in 1962, though they were available optionally. Chevrolet increased production of the 409 and made it available in all full size Chevy's - Biscaynes, Bel Airs, and Impalas. The Impala Sport Coupe came with a ribbed rear roof line and a smaller back window to mimic the look of a cloth convertible top. The Impala's were a bit less aerodynamic this year, which made some racers turn to the lighter and slicker Bel Air coupe. The biggest change from 1961 was that the front bucket seats with a short console between became a part of the SS package in 1962. On the exterior, the most noticeable difference between the Super Sport Impala and the regular Impala was the use of aluminum body molding inserts; plain Impalas came with painted inserts. The rear fender SS emblems were redesigned. For 1962 the SS letters with red inlay were positioned over the circular Impala emblem. An Impala SS emblem was located on the right rear part of the trunk. The 409 was improved by adding new cylinder heads and a revised camshaft. With the standard 4 bbl carb, the 409 produced 380 bhp. But the real news was the improved top of the line 409 which added a pair of Carter AFB four barrel carbs and a lightweight valve train, and produced an astonishing 409 bhp, or a magical 1 bhp per cid. The 409 legend grew. Prices ranged from $2,961-$3,925. Weights were approximately 3,450-3,920 lbs.
