Beautiful car with 427 hemi

Has anyone seen that movie Drive, with the guy from hong kong with the implant to make him faster and its pretty much a martial arts movie with him and the black guy driving the muscle car. Well the car in the Garage where they were fixing the blown line , its was an old classic car , yellow the girl said it had a 427 hemi in it ( i know its just movies but its worth the talk) and black tented windows, what kinda car was that, that thing was beautiful...its ashamed they shot it up, his car wouldve been pretty cool hotrodded too..

427 Hemi??

I don't believe they got the story line right. Isn't the hemi a 426 wedge or Hemi?? The 427 is GM and I don't know if they made a hemi verson. Ford had a 429 or 428 Hemi didn't they?? Anyone know for sure??

The big chrysler hemi was 426. Ford and GM both produced 427 engines. I haven't seen the movie to know what brand the car was.

you sure the movie was Drive or Driven? And I hate to say but it sounds like the thread is pretty much shot up. About the only movie with an Asian and a black guy I can think of is Rush Hour with Jackie Chan & Chris Tucker. Funny stuff!!!! http://www.stomptokyo.com/filmboy/mo...sh-hour-2.html

Maybe they dropped a valve some time in the past and nicked the combustion chamber and increased the displacement 1cu-in.

I just did a search on Yahoo, it looks to be a movie made in 1996 with a bunch of unknown actors in it.

Entirely new heads featured hemispherical combustion chambers with large valve encourage high volumetric efficiency over a broad rpm range. One overhead camshaft per cylinder bank operate the valves through roller-follower rocker arms. These are shaft mounted and are designed for high speed operation with minimum friction.

Those were the days. In the early 60s the engine wars were wonderful. Chrysler was one-upping Ford who was one-upping Chevy. The story of the Ford cammer story is fascinating as is the story of the Chrysler 426 hemi.

Here is an old thread that discusses the hemi story in some depth.
