    My brother in-law who grew up in Chicago land had a buddy who bought new 64 Dodge 330 from Mr. Norm. It was billed as a "street ram". It was a 4 speed, sure grip and was a pretty potent street bruiser.
    Does anyone know what engine comprised the "street ram"?

    The Street Ram was a regular production option, it was a 365 horse 426 Wedge with 10.5-1 compression, a single AFB, a decent hydraulic cam. The Max Wedges were 12.5-1, heads had bigger ports and valves with no heat cross over, solid cam and one AFB or two on the cross ram manifold.
    I don’t remember for sure but Norm might have sold the hi-perf cars dyno-tuned right off the showroom floor.

  3. Yes, Mr. Norm sold cars that were tweaked for more than factory high performance at his dealership.

  4. The best you could get in 64 was a 426 max wedge with two fours. Potent street set up and pretty rare today. Most were gobbled up by racers.

    Fun cars indeed.....
     
  7. the max wedge was not sold as a street car. the 64mw had two compression offerings. neither one was streetable. they were race cars. the street version was as described by fordors. brake lines; inner fender sheet metal and wiring can tip you off to a max wedge.
     
  8. We used to call the regular 426 single 4 barrel cars a "Street Wedge". Never knew if there was a specific or correct term for them beyond that.
