    Marauders are the sexiest automobile designed. I found a 63 s55 with a 390 locally. The crappest part of it the numb nut turned it into a lowrider

    And if you needed more power than this, all models were available with the exotic“Super Marauder” engine. This was a 430 6-barrel engine with an incredible 400 hp. It was the highest horsepower engine available in any American car in 1958. It was also a Lincoln-Mercury engine only, not available in a Ford.
    Actually the 430 MEL was a option in the '60 T-Bird, but was the only year... If I remember correctly was available with a three speed trans and was often used in NASCAR racing...


    Interesting history...

    True, but I was referencing 1958 only in that particular quote. Many things changed from year to year. Engines that were "Marauders" one year might not be the next. They were pretty wishing washy in those days.
    1963 Marauder S-55, Super Marauder 406
    Only factory 406 powered Marauder, and earliest built Marauder documented to still exist.

    Mercury used the "S" ID on all of their early '60s bucket seat models, Comets were S-22 & Meteors were S-33...

    Had a 56 Ford that had a 272 engine and located and had installed a
    Merc 312 in its place. The Mercury engine was rated at ten more h.p.
    than the Fords 312.
