I reread the op, the numbers were for amount built not years I believe, sorry for any mistake on my part and I'll stand in a corner for a timeout.

No worries I knew what you posted was one of them 

I suspect there are many clones out there too

Interesting ! I remember the first time I saw a hemi Dodge at presque  isle dragway  at in Erie,Pa, could feel that , it would pound your chest , thumper

Wasn’t much of a spectator barrier as I remember , any way 

It was back in the day if you had 250 horses you were somebody . 
today your a wimpy at  750 , just change is for certain . 

as for me give me a stock 283 with street headers ,triumph!

nothing wrong with a little 283, not quite elephant numbers but no slouch, Dodge was caught cheating putting fluid in the slicks for weigh in and then swapping them out for racing, there was a lot of creative practices back then
