Great site.. Thank you. Wasn't aware it existed until searching for a power brake booster to restore my Q-Code.

There appears to be wealth of information and friendly comments here, so I will do what I can to help out and gain some knowledge.

I was a line mechanic for Ford when these cars were brand new, and owned a 73 Yellow Mach with a rare 400 c.i. engine.. Should have never let it go.. Who knew??

I too am interested in the "rare 400" engined 73 Mustang. Pretty sure that was never actually made, but...who knows?

Welcome from Phoenix. A factory 400 would have been an odd bird for sure. My 335 series engine forum talks about a rare 400 with a small block bell pattern. It would be interesting to see if you car is still around. Any idea what happened to it? Do you have any info like vin, build sheet or ??

Back in the day anything could happen on the line so I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere a 400 got stuck in one. Did you factory order it that way? Was it some kind of 'test' model?
