I don't think so, every American car that had fender badges displayed a number would be the size of the motor in Cubic Inches, not the HP rating. ex. 302, 390, 427

NO, In 1962 Ford had a "406" cubic inch motor in their Galaxies and had those badges with the crossed checkered flags on the lower front fenders but never had any such 401 horse power or cubic inch badges. MrBlueOval.

No they didn't. The only 2 badges used on the 62 Galaxie was the 390 and 406 emblems

I think I already mentioned that about A YEAR AGO. This was asked on Aug. 24th,2012. Always look for when a question was asked. It's listed above each question. MrBlueOval.
