Were all 390's in 61 Z code, including the 375hp?
Was only way to identify a hipo brakes & front brake line routing?
Found one, need info to be sure, has a center oiler with 428 heads in it.

Chassis components such as 3" brakes, 3/8" fuel line, brake line routing, springs, 15" wheels, steering stops, 4 pinion diff, etc. ... after 57 years could of been changed out, especially one that was restored.

Had a factory 61 390 375 hp. DSO Starliner. The original window sticker and dealership bill of sale were the only documents that positively demonstrated the vehicle as a high perf 375 hp. car. The broadcast sheet also should call out the high perf option.

Seems like every 61 390 at a car show claims to be a hi-perf model.

Regards,
Dennis

a racing delete option ? missing hood / trunk emblems /roof stars / washboards / fender tops plus ??? Also had exhaust cutouts in front of rear tires. I bought a 61 in 63 with the pipes, hooked directly to the manifolds, never saw any literature about them...
