The block is out of a old dump truck and just got out of the sauce, I think it's a 3.875" bore block.
What cubic inches was that engine? I don't ever remember an FE with that bore size. 390 should be 4.05" bore

Four bolt motor mount block out of the late sixties. Possibly a 352 with a 4" bore. Or a 390.
Medium duty stuff like a 361 or 391 would have the double webs in the mains, which this block does not have.

Yes, it should be called an FT because it came out of a dump truck but it's going to be an .030" 390 FE, lol, my book says the C7ME-A might be a 330HD. Here's a picture of the engine, the car it's going in and of a 68 GTE cougar that sold for 32K the way it sat.

Cool project. The gte cars are ultra rare. A428 gte sold at auction here a number of years ago for 65g. Needed a lot of work. Crazy money.

That one is a 427 and I read long ago that there were more 427 gte's build than the 428's.

Here's a page out of my book with block numbers, so it could be a 330 or 361FT, Jim told me what it was some time ago but I forgot, if he see's this he may chime in.
