Wrong....Jack Roush has stated more then 1000x that the 427 number is the HP output of the motor, has nothing to do with the motor size.

They don't even advertise the car as making exactly 427hp, they chose 427 because of the engines that size that everyone knows and are just trying to play it off by having the car make around that much hp.

Sorry dude, but you might ACTUALLY wanna look into that. Them calling it a 427 has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with the motor size. They use it because the car is rated at 427hp....do some research.

I see a V6 grabber orange stang just about everyday. This guy actually didn't even know what side his gas tank was on. If you can't see it in the picture its on the side away from the pump. He had to move his car. lol

Can you not read? I just said I know they call them that because of the horsepower, even tho they don't even rate them at exactly 427hp like you would think they would. It's 435. You would think that if they really wanted to stick with the whole 427hp thing they would actually rate them at exactly 427hp, but they say it makes 435 if you look it up. They put 427 because its a number thats a big badass famous motor everyone knows and that is pretty lame of them to do that instead of writing 435 which is what the car actually makes. The car has nothing to do with the number 427 yet it has a sticker of it on the back.

i think koreys right, bvious 427 officially isnt referring to the engine, btu many people who don't know better, me included, think first of displacement. back in the day that's wht got put on the hood more than the hp. 302's and 440's and such.

In 2002 when the headlights were redesigned to be clear, the door badge changed to two chrome lines.

2003 the new powerstroke diesel V8 door badge was put on 6.0ís only.


The 2002 designed badge was still put on 2003 7.3ís.

This is 100% accurate for super dutyís sold in Minnesota at least.

arnet the silver lines the 6L

Nice find. I've seen 2 in person, on the road I mean. When you get on the highway every day at the Summit Racing HQ exit you see a ton of cool stuff. Every time I pass it I could take out a camera and fill this thread.

actually i don't think they are. you don't see many, but they aren't worth a ridiculous amount. just the average price of a nice collector car. check ebay. you can get them made new now too, though they aren't really real DMC. they are like $60k to have built. depending on options. they use NOS parts, new parts, i dunno, but its a new car with modern features.
