429 Thunder Jet is what I think I have read the non B9 engines in the quarter horse cars are called.

Believe that is the same name Ford used for the 4V 429's installed in T Birds and big cars.

On paperwork Ford used allot of different names tied with common engines likely for PR/sales purposes

For Propayne!   ;)



Coralsnake & propayne, interesting to compare the interior of the engineering car with this shot, 2nd. image, of the interior of the

'69 Cougar 'vert from the James Bond film posted by 2112  in the thread on the auction of that car.

Here is another photograph of 2860. I am not sure what motor that is, but it does not appear to be a CJ manifold. Perhaps it is a still a 427?

In the picture the breather tube is where the water outlet/thermostat housing would be located on a 385 series. 429 below. Agree with Pete that its a FE of some form
