I have been trying to find the answer to this auto trivia question for months off and on. Can anyone help? Try your answer
at: www.autotrivia.com/cgi-shl/60sa.pl
first; I've tried all the obvious.

The question:

This 1967, 396 horsepower muscle
car displayed the 'Super Sport'
script on its rear fender?

Hmmm. Please post the correct answer when it comes up.

I don't find any Chevrolet engines with that horsepower rating for 1967. Could the questioner have confused the 396ci block with the horsepower rating?

I think it's an error.

While trying to work my way thru other questions, I did find 1 other mistake.

They ask what the original batmobile was based on. It was based on a Lincoln, and the answer is 'cadillac'

I agree with Tom and Kurt. They are actually referring to displacement.

I think the trivia answer is either the Nova or the Impala.
The original batmobile was based on a 1958

Byfield, The original "Batmobile " was a Thunderbird (58)...........but they used a Lincoln in "Animal House" to make their parade entry vehicle

The original (TV) Batmobile was customized by George Barris and was built from a (56?) Lincoln. I think the model was Premier. If you find a picture of one, check the shape of the headlight eyebrows as they extend inboard to form little scoops just in front of the hood.

Isn't that .wav file from Ferris Bueller's Day Off? So what was that little red convertible they were driving? I didn't think it was a Chevy or even American made.
