FALSE

The Stage 1 was a factory installed option. The Stage 2 was a dealer installed option. The factory put all the components in the truck and the dealer installed them - like the dual quads for the 302 Z28

427 'Glass Galaxie.

It didn't win a single NHRA national race due to it's heavy weight.

But all that changed the following year- 1964 when they put the dual quad hi-rise 427 race engine into the mid sized Fairlane and a drag racing legend was born . . .

The 1964 Ford Thunderbolt

Any available color. The Carousel Red was a Judge specific color.

Baldwin Chevrolet in Baldwin NY (on Long Island). They were the outlet for the Motion Performance conversions which was also located in Baldwin - dropping in 427s in the place of 396s.

The Fantastic Five were:

427 Camaro
427 Chevelle
427 Nova
427 Chevrolet (Impala/Biscayne)
427 Phase III GT Corvette

It was an option on the 1970 Olds 442 only and is considered the rarest option for that car. What is it?

The W-27 aluminum housing rear axle. The entire center section of the rear end is made of aluminum.

While doing some research to formulate the question, I found that they sell for between $4500 and $6000 on the used market.

Power Steering - it didn't fit.

The 68/69 440 Dodge Dart GTS could be the best fake out muscle car ever built. The car was ordered as a 383 powered GTS, the biggest engine that was factory installed. The cars were sent to the Hurst - Campbell Corporation where the 440 4V engine was installed. About 650 of them were made for the 2 years.

Most of the 440 GTSs still had the 383 markings, either on the lower front fender, just behind the front tire (68) or on the hood bulges (69).

None

They did not appear until 1968. The only distinguishing marks were the rallye stripes
