Is It Numbers Matching? - 428 CJ Cougar by the Numbers
In this video we delve into the complex topic of decoding tags, date codes, and other numbers to check if your classic Ford / Mercury is "numbers matching," using Don's newly acquired '69 Mercury Cougar XR7 428 Cobra Jet convertible as an example. While we haven't covered the subject 100% in this video (to keep it concise) we think this covers most of the major components and gives you the knowledge you need to figure out what your numbers mean. As mentioned in the video, we highly recommend Marti Auto Works, especially his Tagbook, which made this video possible.

Rich Kent's '62 Mercury Comet 429ci BBF E85 fueled 3675lb "Street Car" being tested by his son in law comes up against a new '15 Dodge Challenger Hellcat 707hp Supercharged 6.2 Hemi on premium fuel no doubt lol at RT 66 Test N tune 4-25-15. The Comet gets the jump wheels up and runs 12.16@110.20mph as the Hellcat spins off the line and comes on strong to run a 13.89@123.08 mph. Mind you this is the Hellcat that ran a 10.87@127.79mph a week before on drag radials. So is this race fair seeing both are in "Street Trim"? Make sure you watch till the end of the video to see the 10.87 Hellcat run. Let the controversy and haters begin...
