Default Ford 427 SOHC (Cammer)

My son and I went to the local car show last night . Real nice turn out . I should of taken my camera . These pics were taken with his cell phone . Ever since I can remember , I have only ever seen pictures of this engine . I know it was built to compete against the Hemi in Nascar racing , then was outlawed from Nascar . These motors was never put in the engine compartment of any passenger production vehicle from the factory . Once they were outlawed they were only sold over the counter as crate engines . I hope you can enjoy and understand what your looking at . The owner of this car said he paid $550.00 for it back in 1975 in running condition with a blown clutch . Come to find out once he got it back home that it was only a linkage problem . What a deal , no it should be "What a steal" .

I'd have to pull some casting numbers and do some research but that sure does look like the real thing, Tom. Impressive!

You went to a car show and didn't take a camera???? Bad Tom, Bad Bad Tom. No biscuit for you...

Oh , it's the real McCoy . These motors were only sold as crate motors through Ford . The guy had full documentation of the rebuild . He showed me things about this motor that I wasn't aware of .

Very nice sir! Lots of history behind that engine (I researched FE and FT blocks the other night and happened to read up on the 427 Cammer).
