Hi Rudi,
I have a 1968 38 Commander Sedan in Oregon. It has the original 427's - and I am going to be replacing them with new gas engines.
I was wondering how the Medusa 400's would perform in this particular Commander?
What is the availability of these engines currently?
Thanks, Doug Harris -Portland, OR
