Ford had originally planned to use decals on the front fenders as shown on this promotional photo but decided instead to use die cast emblems:

Hi Lee
As I understand that´s the same engine as the Z16 Chevelle. But in a 4-door, cool. Do you know why it was rated 425 in ´65 and
375 later?

It was available with AMC's Twin-Stick Overdrive Autuomatic Transmission which gave you 5 speeds: 1, 2, 2OD, 3, 3OD. The left stick controls the transmision while the right stick controls the overdrive unit




I have never understood why you need a clutch pedal to work an automatic in those AMC:s?? Is it to engage the overdrive or what?
Do you have an answer?

You got it - to engage/disengage the overdrive.

The 1970 Hemi Superbird currently in the Brothers Collection was used as the getaway car from the 1970 Harrah's Casino robbery. It's nickname: "Money Bags"

Hi Chris

The L78 396 is not the same engine that went into the Z16 Chevelle. The Z16 396 (L37) has a hydraulic lifter cam and log type exhaust manifolds and rated at 375 HP. The L78 396 has a high lift solid lifter cam and "header style" exhaust manifolds and unsilenced air cleaner (Corvette only) only available in the Full Size and Corvette and was rated at 425 HP.

The L37 396 was a one year only engine built specifically for the Z16. The following year, 1966, Chevy introduced the L78 396 @ 375 HP with high lift solid lifter cam and unsilenced air cleaner

1965 L37 396 (201)




1965 L78 396 (3995)




1965 L78 - Full Size (1838)




1965 L78 - Corvette (2157)

1966 L78 SS 396 Chevelle (1 of 3099)













The L78 396 was $237 while the L34 360 HP 396 was $105.35. And no - there isn't really a 15 HP difference between them. It's more like 50 HP.
