The Q code uses the hood with the hood scoop while the R code uses the Shaker Hood Scoop

The maroon one is a Q code while the green one is an R code:

What are two differences between the 1969 Boss 429 Mustang and the 1970 Boss 429 Mustang (one is engine related while the other is appearance related)?

The 1969 Boss 429 uses a hydraulic cam while the 1970 uses a solid lifter cam

The hood scoop on a 69 is body colored while on a 70, it is matte black

It was the first Mustang to get the 428 engine option (GT500) the regular Mustang didn't get it until 1968.

My guess would be whatever the Inline 6 option was that year (I think the 230).. Why would you want a Chevelle witrh a I6 when you have a 396 and 454 BIG block option??? Oh yeah, the added cost and gas.. Man that LS6 was an expensive upgrade for the day.. But worth every penny. 1 of the best M C engines ever built IMO..

Ahh, you said SS and not just Chevelle... Hmmm I would say 396..

The 396 (really 402) 375HP L78

1970 Chevelle SS production numbers:

L34 350HP 402 = 42,682
LS6 450HP 454 = 4,475
LS5 360HP 454 = 4,298
L78 375HP 402 = 2,144

Total = 53,599

Some of the dealer installed options were:

Dual-quad carburetors
Deep-sump oil pans
Quadruple Weber carburetor setups.

Why did Ford stop production of the Thunderbolt after only one year (1964)?

The number of T-Bolts built seems to differ. Either 100 or 110 though all sources say the first 11 were painted maroon while the next 89/99 were painted white.

Ford, which had been losing $1500 to $2000 on each Thunderbolt sold at the sticker price of $3900.

So if we take the 100 number and use $1750 as the average loss, then Ford lost $175,000 selling T-Bolts.
