Hi, does anyone know where to get one? It seems that only the 62-63 version is available... Would also really appreciate a pic of the correct -64 type spring..
Thanks in advance /L-G

I just looked it up in the Chevrolet parts book (1965), and it is the same spring from 1958 through 1964, assuming that I am reading this correctly. It is described as "Spring, Accelerator Pull Back" Group 3.459 Part #3821966
(6 1/4" free length)(white)for the V8 engines. There is a different spring for the 6 cylinder cars.
There is a reproduction spring on eBay currently, for $15 with free shipping. If you want an original GM one, I have a friend that I can pry a couple out of. We both picked Chevrolet dealers parts rooms, and we went to the swap meets together selling. I just got one from him for my car.

Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

As Junky said, the front spring is the same for all years (the white one). The rear return springs for a 2x4 409 are the same for both '63 & '64. Part number 3843968. Sorry, I don't a photo of one, but this is the '62 rear spring, p/n 3731414.
