You got it Joe, it's your floor.

I know nothing about Fords but remembered this from this Shelby I painted back in 1988? He had just bought it for $15K which was a LOT of money for a "Mustang" back then.

Thanks. That was a lucky guess. I figured it was either that or air conditioning.

Next question:

Back to land speed records.....

Where was the first 200+ mph land speed record officially set?

Trivia - Land speed Records

In March ,1927 Henry Segrave, driving a car called the "Slug" went over 200 MPH on the beach at Daytona (with a 100 hp Sunbeam engine!)
(Can you imagine doing 200 plus on the tire technology of 1927??? )

And once again, I will defer to ANYONE else on asking the next question, as I have none at all to pose to the group - Maybe Brain can ask his Cougar question now?

The standard eliminator engine was the 351 2v Cleveland,
for more power you could get the 300 HP 4 barrel version of the 351c
some had 351 Windsor 4V engines due to shortages of the Cleveland engine.
they also had as an option the BOSS 302 290 HP
and the CJ 428 335 HP engine.

You know Bob, I am now finding conflicting information so I am going to give it to you.

You are right but I found that there was also a SOHC 427 AVAILABLE but none were known to be built!

The floor is yours.

Thanks Brian
Not reading all these posts from start this might have been asked, if not I think it might start something, here goes.

When was the first self-propelled car invented?
And how fast was the car able to go?

I recalled that it was a Frenchman, and about when and it wouldn't go very fast, then I Googled it and found the answer, but am leaving it for someone else to have a chance here - and it wasn't Duryea(sp)
