Sorry John, but it’s you. The Goldenrod did use 4 426 Hemis. I’m sure there were other land speed record attempts with dual 392’s, but not this one. I have the original Hot Rod from back when this was fresh news.

I think they made a mistake at hot rod..it had two hemis, maybe even 392. I
read that, and thought they screwed this all up..or maybe it is me who is
all screwed up . Hot Rod wings it a lot. That tech guy in back makes lots of
mistakes .

Whatever ---Goldenrod is an unreal thing. From two guys in a garage

For the history buffs, this is the 50th anniversary of the "Goldenrod" land
speed record run at Bonneville. The record of 409 mph in a normally
aspirated engine set stood for ten years. They had used 4 426 cid engines
borrowed from Chrysler were used and three articles recounting the event and
restoration are shown below.
