Probably stories that were written in advance of sale of the car . IIRC I read CC has a 3 month lead time before a story / article gets printed . or maybe one of the magazine employee/writers bought it ??..77.

I wonder if they grenaded that motor [too] which prompted the sale?  The last update on the AMC (in the editorial page a month or two ago) sort of pissed and moaned about building an alternative car - and the costs and trouble.

Yes, " Numbnuts- I- don't- Need- To- Talk- To- Any- AMC- Experts- Because- This- Engine- Is- Just- Another- Motor-And I Know -About - Motors- From -My -Years-Of- Experience- At- Better- Gardening- Glad" blew up the 370. According to the SoCal AMC Club Prez, the 401 is at JMC and he's seen it. So either the blurb in CC is simply a copy editor miss or someone else at CC has the car or a friend of a friend, etc. apparently has it.

Well it would be good to see what the 401 will do, with their bag of tricks applied. SH

Yeah, wrote 'em to see what they say. May have to call. I hope Glad learned his lesson so that I'll be more diplomatic on the phone- as a pinch of sugar is better than a dose of salt!

My buddy mentioned that car this morning. I hadn't seen it. Sure could be the recipient for the 401 if CC rescued it.

Plus I gotta remember the engine is at JMS, not JMC which builds bicycles! Be an interesting place for a 401 to be...

Dunno if this out yet, but I finally pulled my head out and called Doug. Well not that bit of information, I'm getting to the juicy part. Wink I'm also officially eating crow here. He's a nice guy and I feel like a jerkoff for talking crap about him here and elsewhere not knowing him at all. Lesson learned. The CC Rambler LIVES!!!!!! Yay!!!! It hasn't been sold, though he still may sell it and based on his hints at his next area of interest, if anyone has a two- seater project car for sale coming up.... Anyways, the 401 is a 438 and he's goinna have that mill between the Rambler's fenders within 2-3 weeks and then it will make some runs at Irwindale possibly by early summer. More as things develop. He also shared some fascinating insights and myth debunking about running 360's- some aspects of which I'll share in the how much hp to get out of a 360 thread in the engine area. This is awesome!
