    Volgens mij vanaf 1961:


    Late in 1961 the 409 engine was released. Because of it’s late arrival, production numbers were low in the first year. The total production figures for 409’s in ’61 was only 142! Making them very rare today. This also marked the first year of the SS. There was a total of 453 Supersports made in 1961. The 1961 SS 409 could be considered the father of the muscle car for Chevy. Other auto makers like, Pontiac, Buick, Plymouth, were all coming out with bigger engines. Chevrolet needed the 409 to keep up at the drag strips. There was only one version of the 409 in 1961. It was the 360hp. It was equipped with solid lifters, high lift cam, and a 4-barrel Carter AFB carburetor. In 1962, a 380hp could be had. More importantly the 409hp 409 with 2 4-barrel Carter AFB’s was now available. This is the one that the Beach boys were singing about in ’62. 1963 saw 3 new horsepower 409’s. The 340hp, 400hp, and the 425hp. The 340hp had hydraulic lifters, and both the 400 and 425hp came with solid lifters, and special cam. This was the first year chrome was used on the 409’s. The 400hp 409 came with a single 4-barrel Carter AFB carburetor, and the 425hp 409 with 2 4-barrel Carter AFB’s. These same three engines were available for 1964 however it would be the last year for the 425hp version. In 1965 the 340hp and the 400hp 409’s were the only sizes available. Sales dwindled down to 2,828 in 1965 due to the 409 option ending around February of 1965. This was the last year for the 409. It was replaced by the 396.

    Maar die 350 heb ik eringezet omdat de 283 overleden was.

    En een 409 bestond toen nog niet.

    Mvg, Peter
