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.
