Thank you Sir.

That is the 410 cube MEL series engine (not an FE) that came in 383, 410, 430, and 462 cubes later. The 430 and 462 were used in the suicide door Lincolns. They were torque monsters, and in those days there was hop up stuff for them, and they did fairly well when not in a land yacht.
