    348 or 409 with triples W big Chevy, what could go wrong ? Wow, I spotted the engine and instantly thought " That's a Keeper in my book ." Is it a TH350 . TH400 or a five speed gog box ? Certainly looks super cool and I too love the five window before the three window coupes.
    I maybe a little crazy but it stops me going insane.

    Verrrrry cool. I always liked the old W motors.

    ".... 1200 mile r/t in 1 day...." Makes for a long day don't it

    I'm going to guess it's a 348.....it's been a long time but it seems like the 348 intakes (and they didn't make a Tri-Power 409) didn't work on the 409s due to port mis-match. The work around was to swap the 409 heads for 348 heads to run the Tri Power, but but gave up port (and valve?) size.

    Thanks for the added info on the 409 and the tri- intake as I didn't know that the Chevy people only released the tri power on the 348. I remember a good mate of mine thought he had found a 409 advertised in the local paper for sale, ( this is before computers ), so he goes to have a look at the engine with his tools in tow and says to the guy he will buy it if he can remove a head and drop the sump to measure her first. The guy wasn't keen and reassured him that it was a 409 but Herbie stood his ground until the guy agreed, well it measured up to be a 348 so Herbie negotiated a much cheaper deal on the engine and I believe he still has the grin on his face from that. The engine went into a '64 Ponti Convertible with a blower and twin 4's on top.

    Quick way to tell a 48 from an 09.

    Unless someone has changed the pan, as they (348 & 409) interchange.
