The Beach Boys released the song 409 in 1962, the same year this classic was produced.
The song was inspired by Gary Usher's obsession with hot rods. Its title refers to an automobile fitted with Chevrolet's 409-cubic-inch-displacement big-block V8 engine. The song's narrator concludes with the description My four-speed, dual-quad, posi-traction four-oh-nine. This Black Beauty is powered by a dual quad carbs mounted atop a legendary 409 engine.
