Smile Big Merc

Hi,

I'm looking at a 1964 Mercury Montclair Marauder. It has a 427 with 4-speed. I'd like to find out if all this is from the factory. It is a Canadian car with the following numbers: 5BB 345 JB and 163C 64L 072721. I've a feeling it was born with a 390. Also, how can I tell if the 427 in there is the right one?

Re: Big Merc

I believe that the MM's did all come with the 427 and 4 speed,however ,I could be wrong.There are several sources that can decode your car.You can start with contacting LMC or Barrett-Jackson or even the local Merc dealership should be able to help. Good Luck!!!

Re: Big Merc

its not much snd i may be wrong but, i believe in 64 a 427 w/4brl has a Q for the engine code(should be the 5th # in the vin) a 427 w/ 2-4's has a R code.
390's got H,Y,and Z
