Ford rated the 390 in 1968 at 325 HP. This was one of the few instances where the HP rating was higher than what the engine actually put out: around 305 HP which in 1968, for a big block engine, was pretty anemic. The reason: small valves - the same as were used in the high performance Chevy small block. With the demise of the HiPo 289 in 1967 and an over-rated 390, you can understand why Ford had the smallest portion of the muscle car market. Of course all that changed in April 1968 with the introduction of the 428 Cobra Jet.

And the most puzzling fact about the 390 was back in 1962 it was a killer engine: 375 HP with a solid lifter cam.

Is that an accurate production figure? Does PHS keep those kind of records for a 1971 Judge?

A rare occurrence . . . this beautiful numbers matching 1967 GT500 Shelby will be sold next week at Mecum's Houston auction at No Reserve.

From this angle it looks like a nice 1971 442.



Unfortunately something went wrong during the restoration when installing the hood. Dealer is asking $73,000 for the car. No idea what it would cost to fix.



Proper installation

I am guessing here . . . all the photos of this car have the convertible top in this position. IMO - they tried to lower the top and it either got stuck or broke but they took the photos anyways

I believe I may have already posted a photo of this 1970 AMX. How many could be out there for sale with WSW tires and the wrong trim rings?

I haven't seen breakdowns like that, but that's not to say they don't exist!

The 1971 Judge convertibles are all identified, but the hardtops, I've only seen breakdowns by transmission. Someone would have had to go through every 1971 Judge hardtop invoice and sort them by paint and interior color to come up with that number.

And the paint is severely mottled on the nose. Doesn't even qualify to be called orange peel.
May not be a bad looking car from 10 feet, but from 2 feet, not so much.
