Default Re: Vintage cars

Indeed, both are correct. In '64, the car came with a 330 CID. So the nomenclature was for four barrel, 4-speed, and dual exhaust.
In '65, the car got the 400 CID, and options (like the notorious Hurst shifter/3 speed manual) or a 2 speed automatic made the 442 to mean 400 cu. inch, 4 barrel, dual exhaust.
The '66 you could even get with the six-pack (3 two barrel carbs), so the 442 really just became the name of the car, at that point.
This seat does not recline as per Federal Aviation Regulation 121.310 (f)(3)
