Good eye DaveWelcome to FBBO from Ontario; the one in Canada. That is a sweet looking '62 Dodge wagon you have. I think the engine is either 361 or 383. The engine numbers can be found in the passenger side front/side of the block. 36 = 361 38 = 383. The valve covers should be swapped side for side.
Thank you both. So I need to pull the distributor to see the number. Will do and I’ll report back once it’s done.Welcome Michael!
Like Dave6t4 said look under the distributor for a flat pad on the block. (Red arrow) Look for a 36 or 38

Here's some info on '62s from my build thread. My Polara 500 was from California also and spent its life in Oregon. Rust free also.
Yes, I have received a whole lot of strong advise on that point. That said, I am going to change the color of my headliner. The liner is shot. It’s the only really bad thing in my interior. Going with light green.That's a beautiful car.....not gonna tell you what to do, since we just met and all......
but if I were you....I'd be very careful to leave that beauty in its pristine state, and consider all moves towards customization, very carefully.
It’s actually a beige/tan color interior. I’d call it cocazoid. It’s described as cocoa.
Amazed by the condition of your wagon assuming it hadn’t been restored at some point. Would think it was spared Detroit winters and stored in a nice environment. When I bought my ’63 Fury (CA car) it was in similar condition; but the interior was sun-wrecked (vert) one of the reasons I couldn’t pass it up as the first guy to get a look at it.
