Official Thread For 460 Articles

This thread is for 460 related articles (or features) that are of interest to our board members.

Please post your links here with a brief description of the article, the origin of the article and year published. (if known)

For example: These first 4 links are from an article published in Super Ford 1990 and I will start with the article name, then mag. title, year and month.

Torque-O-Matic
Super Ford
March 1990
Engine build (800 HP)

http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/j...O-Maticpg3.jpg
http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/j...O-Maticpg4.jpg

This is a sample. If you click on the article, then the enlargment box ( 4 arrow box) in the lower right corner, you can view the pages better.

This article is my personal favorite of all time because this is the Super Ford 460 article that started it all for me...both my love affair with the 460 as well as my love for the 83-88 T-Birds.
