Nope, had a Gran Torino, 351 that thought it was a 390, but it is long gone. Always liked the Mustang but never have owned one.

I had a 64 ford custom sta wgn that had a 429 police interceptor in it. Yes, it came from the factory that way.

It had crap gears in the auto tranny, and weighed several tons, built like a tank.

It wasn't much out of the hole but it had no top end. At around 130 mph it would start drifting around the highway enough to scare you into letting off, but still had plenty of petal and power left.
