Numbers break down like this per Cougar, by the numbers,
with close ratio 4 speed, 215 std hard tops; 3 standard convertibles, 35 XR-7 hard tops and 17 XR-7 convertibles
(270 total w/4 speeds)
with C-6 automatics, 243std hard tops, 4 standard convertibles, 274 XR-7 hard tops 49 XR-7 convertibles (570 total automatics)
Interesting fact per Michael Banks, of the 243 Standard hard tops with 428 CJ and C-6 automatic, 196 were Eliminators leaving only some 47 Standard Hardtops with this power train. But 73 total Convertibles with a CJ no matter what transmission and body style makes them VERY rare indeed
Yo, 428 is the best choice, bro. I think that it is my dream to have a car like this. Besides, it is a very good number. Yeah, I'm fond of numerology and now I'm checking every number meaning. For example, I have a house number 111 and there is a special meaning for this number, check 111 meaning here. It is quite interesting.
