    Smile Mopar 273 la Commando a great engine


    The 273 that Plymouth/Dodge used in the 66 D stock project were great with a 273 CI vs Hp of 275 stock, actually they were pushing over 300+ HP. Now, how many engines do that in a stock configuration????

    I've always liked the 273, and it did perform!

    But just to annoy sbc haters, one of the best of the same period was the L79 327, 350hp.

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.
