Mercury also, in 1964, built 50 427 dual quad hi riser Comets. Why did these never race against the Ford Thunderbolt?

The T-Bolt used 7" slicks and ran in Super Stock. The 427 Comet ran 10" slicks and competed in A/FX (factory experimential) where it too cleaned house. This was the class that eventually became Funny Car.

1970.

All 1971 Camaros, no matter what engine, got a 10 Bolt rear end.

It was never an engine option but supposedly a handful of 1967 Shelby GT500s got one.

In 1969 AMC built a limited production AMX with a 390 V8, dual Holley carbs, 12.3:1 compression-ratio cylinder heads and headers. What was it called?
