Way back when I had a subscription to Hot Rod and Car Craft, one of those two did a write up or blurb on it. From what I can remember, it was a 383 car, nothing special. I just remember being disappointed it wasn't rocking a 440 or Elephant or really much to speak of in the go fast goodies department. Still, I wouldn't kick it out of bed.
Most of the time the car used in the movies or sitcoms are basic version and sometimes even worse. Fast & Furious 70 charger was equiped a ... 350 chevy block and a fake blower !
383 is the most commonly used on the screen. 3 exceptions to my knowledge : Some General Lee were Hemis, 440-6 and 440ci, Kowalski Challi was a 440 and Bullit's Charger is a Hemi too (the sound of the engine was even used to overdub Mc Queen's Mustang !!!).
You can find these information quite easily now on the web.
I didn't know about the 'stang small block, thanks !
Wikipededia is all about crap, especially when it comes to cars. The French version of the Plymouth's Roadrunner page is just a huge joke made of crap and automated translation of American web articles... For exemple, it s says the it was the fastest muscle available, then it says that it was equiped with a 383, then it says that was the only one equiped with the Elephant and one paragraph later, that it was an option (true, but doesn t match the rest of the rest of the article). If only I knew the great guy who wrote this ****...
People who knows about muscle in Europe are as rare as big block equipped muscle cars... Even if the Dutch, German and the Swiss seems to be more concerned.
I saw recently an article about a French sport car and the photo was a picture of a clone ! So sad !
