I have one of those! The reason why the decal says "395 Golden Commando" is that's the 361's TORQUE rating: 395 ft. lbs! This little 'cheat' was also used by the 1958 Edsel. The "E-400" was also 361 cubic inches (and 400 ft. lbs. torque) and the "E-475" was 410 c.i. By the way,Ford's 25-millionth V8 was an E-475 in a senior Edsel.
