http://www.genocide2600.com/~traviso/mml/bodydecode.html#vindecode I went to the URL above & found the following: R= Belvedere / Satellite 21= 2 door sedan H= 240 HP with 4-bbl V8 3= 1973 G= St. Louis I couldn't find the N code but did find M= Road Runner (68-74) Double check the VIN on the car you are looking at. The only N code was N= Coronet New York Taxi Cab 1970-71

gustang is correct, the vin number should start out with either RP, RM, or RH. RP is a sport satellite, RM is a roadrunner, and RH is a base satellite, which is what I believe you have since H and N look similar on the vin

Im thinking it is RM for roadrunner due to the H code. Not sure satellites had a 340 option available except in the roadrunner package.

Yes they did. Thought my dad sad the 340 was an option in the Sebring Plus in '72. I've seen literature photos of a '71 with a six pack 440 and stripe still called a Satellite. Big blocks and even 340s are rare. How many were factory optioned and not special by a dealer or individual I don't know.

how strong did a 340 roadrunner pull
