    Saw a Beautiful Project Vehicle at my Local Mechanic Shop

    Saw this vehicle at my mechanic's shop. They said it was a long term build they just started on. Right now they're doing brakes. Next is mechanicals and then paint. This looks soo pretty! I am glad the owner is putting her back on the road! Anyone here know about/own this beauty?

    Nice '63! My guess is that it has a 390FE.

    Diagnosis at my house is inspecting wires. Drink a beer. Talk about what to do next. Drink a beer. Call Jaydees to bring over his spare FPDM. Drink beer waiting for him. When he shows up with the part look at it and say hold my beer while I get in the trunk. Replace part. Cannot test drive because............ Diagnosis.

    Very nice
    390 2V, 250 HP was standard
    390 4V, 300 HP was a very common option
    1963 Marauder S-55, Super Marauder 406
    Only factory 406 powered Marauder, and earliest built Marauder documented to still exist.
