Ronald Klinszar:  Chrysler did not serialize an engine code into a VIN until 1966.  Engine codes were not included on the Body Data Plates, either.

How many 405 HP's are there, and are they identified in the VIN?   Ron Klinczar

Hey Andy— great story on Ray Brock and 405 H clone . I remember that like it was yesterday . I had a 392 in 57 dodge D500 coupe with Packard OD stick , 3:70 . 1962 .( my mini 300!)  Best car I ever beat was a 421 Pontiac Ventura tri Power coupe 4 speed ( well — guy was not the best driver but I won) . State cop got both of us , pulled over , racing . I was in front , cuz I won. He gives Pontiac a ticket . (600 then) Comes to me “ what you have in this thing? “392 hemi ; “ Goes pretty good .. —Think it would beat my cruiser?”  (406 Ford) . We both start laughing . He says “ Have a great night ,I hate Pontiacs” — lets me go!! 

Later a good friend , waved at me . Cops like that are no more... 

thanks again for publishing that. 12.88 in a full size Chrysler ? Would have won whole thing except asleep on the line !   

What 454 chev? 409 ? Forget it

Happy (300-F)riday everyone out there in 300 land!

The latest News-Flite found its way into my snail mailbox today. This event always prompts me to get serious about the next issue. So, we're looking for some 300-F stories. A couple contributions have trickled in already and we're forward looking to a story from Nick, "Mr.." himself, but we need more to fill the 40-page Club News you have become accustomed to.

Had your 300 to any events lately? Send us a photo. I received a great shot of three 300-Fs together at a recent area show.
