It's a 76 460, D3 stock heads + block,204/214 .479 / .504 cam , Edelbrock performer dual plane intake , edelbrock performer 780 carb , early 429 timing set ,pertronix flamethrower 2 billet dizzy + coil , Crites long tube headers w/ 2 inch primaries , 2.5 inch duals , she's a low mileage ,un-smogged , real strong runner .Thanks,

350-400 gross  280-330 Net SAE? Torque should be pretty strong, especially on the lowend. Sounds like a good street cruiser.

Love the body style. Reminds me of the Charles Bronson movie "The Mechanic" as they had a 1971 at the end, that unfortunately gets blown up.

X3...reminds me of my '73, gold w/black interior. I ordered it in August with a 351 HO and it took me till January to get it because it would not pass emissions. Too bad about the low compression, my father-in-law had a '70 Cougar 351 Cleveland that could have kicked my butt any day of the week. And I had to pay extra insurance because the Mustang Mach I was considered a performance car and the Cougar wasn't  Razz Rolling Eyes .
Oh well, I still loved the car.
