    I had a number of cars during high school. (All purchased with my own hard-earned money.) I think the worst was the 1954 Plymouth Belvedere. Back then you could buy a 10-15 year old car for less than $200 and drive it away. I also had 52 Chevy Coupe (my first car), A 64(?) Simca and a 54 Ford Crestline. That was real looker back then and a great date getter.

    I had new 53, 55, and 57 Belvederes . Those were the days. pretty good job and before a wife. :-) Well the first one was while in the Air Force but the others were after discharge and pre marriage. :-)

    With the right factory engine some of those cars were good performers. What gave me a laugh with many of the 'sleeper' cars was that they were actually fairly quiet (factory mufflers) but could really move. Pitt one of them against a car that somebody 'built'- with a nice throaty roar to give the illusion of power- and the sleeper would leave them in the dust.

    We had a station wagon at one time with a 390 in it. Full factory car. When my dad brought it home we all got to ride in it of course- nice roomy car for the family. The odd time it would be just him and me, and he would give it the odd 'test'. That thing really moved.

    We had a Rambler Ambassador at one time- it had the 290 in it. It was no slouch either.

    I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

    Here is the brochure for the 1966 Marlin. Click on the thumbnails; one mentions a 327 engine you can order for it: http://www.oldcarbrochures.com/stati...re/index1.html.

    I lived in Phoenix in 1965-66, my first job after leaving university. I can't help wondering if the Marlin I photographed yesterday has been here since that time. It would probably have rusted out, elsewhere.

    I just looked at about 100 pics of all different kinds of them - no matter how you slice it - no matter what you do or how you paint them they are hideous to look at,

    i was curious about trunk space with such a small lid and found this pic, even though the lid is small it looks like the trunk can still swallow a transmission with just a slight burp; https://www.oldcaronline.com/photos/884145/884145_9.jpg

    Somebody did have some "cool factor" success but hate to think what it cost just to get the big fish palatable...

    It's that ugly? Really?
    If so, then the '67 Barracuda fastback was in the same league.
    you guys are so full of crap.
    Yeah, I know you guys, if it aint a Chevy, then it's crap
    If it aint a Ford, then it's crap,
    If it aint a Mopar, then it's crap.
    Not any one of you has a neutral interest.

    Definitely not an off-road vehicle

    Yeah but think of how easy it would be to get a body in and out of that trunk being that low and all...
