Hey Gary (KULTULZ)
What years was the M-400 available?
Was it only 383 cubes?
Thanks

The SUPER MARAUDER 3X2 400HP Engine was available in the 1958 MERC (APR 58 Intro) and the same basic performance package was released on the 58 LINC. The only difference was the air cleaner and thermostat housing. Supposedly (I haven't been able to confirm this yet) it was also released on the 59 BIRD.

Optional on the MERC were cast aluminum rocker covers. LINC had chromed rocker covers, again optional.

It was designed by Bill Stroppe and based on the LINC 430.

Last Thursday on Speed, there was a AMC marathon.
During the Maurader episode, they did a segment from a noted restorer of Mercurys shop.
(Don't recall his name)
In the shop was a pale green 58 or 59 Montery 2 dr sedan being restored.
Next to the car on a stand was a "M-400".
He eluded that the engine was going into the car.
He removed the air cleaner to display the carbs and began to discribe the motor's internals and history. It had the cast valve covers.
He mentioned several times that it was a 383 cube motor.
Not doubting you Gary, just asking, (so don't get your panties all in a bunch, or your crabs all backed up)is it possible that they also made a 383 inch version of that motor?

They guy seemed to know what he was taling about as he also has a 427 Marauder.

I have studied MEL extensively since very few knew much about it, even those that actually own the cars.

The SUPER MARAUDER package was designed by BILL STROPPE, a performance specialist hired by MERC DIV. Rumors had it that the 3X2 package was available only over the counter. I found that actually MERC did not release this option for assembly until APR 58. LINC also had their own version. It may be that this gentleman had a dealer option or kit on the 383. The 383 was MERC specific and came only in two ratings, 312HP and 330HP. The MERC 430 was rated at 360HP and this option brought the rating to 400.

But this brings up something very interesting. On the MEL Forum, a gentleman discussed his father leaving him his 57 BIRD with a SUPER MARAUDER transplant. On pulling and disassembling he found that it was actually a 383 (short stroke). His father was a FORD tech and I alluded (before pulling the engine) that he may have found the engine in a MERC of that period. Funny thing, it had brite rocker covers (LINC option).

As far as I know (and the documentation I have collected), The SUPER MARAUDER package only came through on the 430 (even had it's own door code on LINC/MERC).

But unlike certain others, I have learned to never say never concerning FOMOCO. I wish I had Speed Channel to see the episode.

I would really appreciate that Alex. Like I said, I have been studying MEL and the LINC Y-BLOCK for a couple of years now and I usually come across something new everyday.

Further Clarification:

This BIRD did not have the OEM air cleaner asm. with it. There are subtle differences between the MERC and LINC air cleaner assemblies. It had chromed rocker covers (indicative of a LINC engine- may also have been aftermarket as these were offered by a LINC parts vendor until recently). MERC optinal covers were cast aluminum. So it is hard to say at this date where the engine origionally came from and how it was assembled. It also used a HD 3/S (WARNER) instead of a 4/S WARNER or TOP LOADER. So that makes it a time piece conversion (late fifties).

Fascinating. Can you imagine this thing in a 57 FORD CUSTOM?

Unfortunately, it will be far out of my price range...

Looks like the guy that bought the blower intake is probably Travis Perrenot's brother. They ran a blown gas 430 in 1959 and the early 60's. Travis passed away a couple years back (RIP) but told me the engines were nearly indestructible and they got over 500 cubes with an overbore and offset ground crank.

The strangest thing happened...

The wife sent me to the store for a loaf of bread and a gallon of milk and when I returned she had moved...

I got the tape OK...Thanx!

Been fixing on the house and had the computer disconnected for awhile.

What the guy was describing was the MARAUDER series of engines in the 1958 MERCURY, beginning with the 383 (he stated 330HP but there was also a 312HP) and going up to the 400HP SUPER MARAUDER.

Another guy also stated the S-55 was a street released race car but actually it was a high trim level denoting bucket seats and floor shift as was the FORD GALAXY 500 XL.

Very interesting program but I guess it was rushed and there were a few mistakes made.

S-22, S-33, S-55

These three Mercury names refer to the high-line series in the Mercury Comet, Mercury Meteor, and full-size Mercury cars.

Technically, the correct name for the 1962 S series cars were Mercury Comet Special, Mercury Meteor Special, and Mercury Monterey Special. However they were never marketed using those names.

The Mercury Comet S-22 was offered from 1961 to 1963. The Mercury Meteor S-33 was offered in 1962 and 1963.

The Mercury S-55 was offered in 1962, 1963, and 1966; it was an optional Sports Package offered on the 1967 Monterey 2-door hardtop and convertible. The S-22, S-33, and S-55 all featured bucket seats, console, and special trim. The 1966 Mercury S-55 (and 1967 package) had a 428-cubic inch V-8 engine as standard equipment.

Always searching for a deal and checking what else the people are selling when an item comes up in a search.

The only difference was the air cleaner and thermostat housing. Supposedly (I haven't been able to confirm this yet) it was also released on the 59 BIRD.

I heard from Brian Perrenot today...
"Tom, I was looking at the Mustangs and More forum and saw that in the "more
intake options for the MEL engine" part, you mentioned my brother Travis
Perrenot."
"We in fact did run the MEL engines, although back then we weren't aware that
they were called MEL engines, we just called them 430's. We raced them both
unblown as well as blown and on gas as well as nitro. In fact I am in the
process now of re-creating our old AA Fuel Comp Coupe & Sedan car. This car
is the one in which we won the 1961 AHRA World Nationals in AA Gas Comp
Coupe & Sedan with at Green Valley, Texas and runner upped in the AA Fuel
class the next year. If anyone is interested, I can answer a few million
questions concerning the 383/410/430 MEL. "

How cool is that?
