well its a 400 because it has headers and 301s dont have any headers that fit.....so problem solved....

I beg to differ.

damn....well they do specify it as a 6.6 so the 301 could have been swapped with a 400 very easily but the low mileage also makes me question.....

You missed it.  Under engine it says 6.6L, which technically isn't saying it's a 400, but that would indicate that it's not a 301.

But we know it's not a 403.  It's probably a 301 and the guy listing it doesn't know anything about these cars.  Just the notation that he had his experts check the odometer to prove the mileage is correct shows he doesn't know anything about the car.  Those clusters can be changed in a half hour.

I always find it funny when these idiots go out and sell a car without "knowing all the facts"  It pisses me off, because I'm usually the guy who buys them

I had a guy try and tell me that the Rally II wheels on my T/A were not factory and tried telling me the 455 in his 78 was factory option even though its had a "L" engine code. Then he said he had the original "400"  for it not the 350 listed by the vin.
There wasn't any sense in wasting my time with him any more.
