1966 GTO Blog #2 - Engine Removal V8TV

http://www.v8tvshow.com - Time for the original engine to come out of the car. After we pulled the front sheetmetal and yanked out the engine, we later were able to identify it as a date-code correct 1966 389, although we couldn't find a VIN stamp on the block. The car's VIN denotes it as a true GTO, however. This motor was reported to be a rebuilt unit. We didn't tear it down, but the multiple coats of spray paint indicate it has had a cosmetic, not mechanical, restoration.

Muscle Car of the Week Video Episode #95: 1964 Mercury Comet A/FX 427
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314.783.8325 - Back in 1964, Super Stock drag racing racing was one of the hottest things going, and people loved the competition and energy of stock-appearing cars going much faster than normal. The next evolution was Factory Experimental, a class that allowed manufacturers to get a little crazier with performance parts and special pieces in cars that still appeared similar to what was for sale in local showrooms. This 1964 Mercury Comet is an A/FX car, one of 21 built, and it still retains all the "experimental" speed parts that it wore back in '64, like the 425 HP high-riser 427 and all the fiberglass body panels.
