The 440 6 pack was rated 390 in 69 and 70.

And from:
Tony Blanchard. The 413 max wedge was rated 410hp with 11.0 to 1 compression and 420hp with 13.5 to 1.

Otherwise good article

The figures in the article are the official ones from the historian at FCA.

Thanks for reading. ;)

Those are the official numbers supplied to me by the historian at FCA.
Then the historian is mistaken. It was rated at 390 for 69.5 and 70 model years. In 1971 and 1972 (5 or 6 built at the beginning of 1972 model year) it was 385 because it was slightly de-tuned due to emissions.

Primary sources show 390 hp, such as

Nice work, only thing missing, A picture of the 413 Wedge with the long ram intake, Those just look awesome with the carbs hanging over the front wheel wells. Pictures just for effect....

Also Chrysler did make a 361 C.I. "B" engine, larger than the 360 Cu. In. "LA" and 5.9L Magnum motor. :D Sorry I'm just being a D-Head... Nice article.

Not that it matters , but I have to agree with others about the historian. Like us he/she is human and can make mistakes. I've built a period correct 413 Max Wedge motor after years of sourcing parts. It was rated at 420 HP with the 13.5:1 compression.

Nice write up! Raise a glass to the big inch mills - we probably won't see their like again once this current generation of cars is gone.
