Howdy, Where can I find info for this car? It came with a 406, 3-dueces(holley), 4-speed, 2-door>I was told that Ford was on strike this year and only made a certain amount of them with this setup to qualify for nascar. Any info about this would be great. Thanks Bullfrog

People will tell you anything you are likely to believe. The Starliners were a 2 year only limited issue, even back then. And it is true they had an aerodynamic advantage over the "BoxTop" Formal roof design of the rest of the full size Galaxies. It how you put the pieces together that makes the story a little "ambitious".

The 406 was production in 1962. If your source claims his engine is a factory installed version, check the vin. Otherwise, it could just as easily be bored over 390 or later after production install. As far as I know the 375hp 3x2 solid lifter 390 was the biggest thing installed in the 1961 big cars.
