Like a wild animal, the Ford 427 engine roars out staggering power and relentless performance, so it is no wonder these engines dominated some of the most prestigious auto races in history, like the 24 Hours of Le Mans race back in the late 1960s. Even today, Ford 427 engines are very popular with Ford enthusiasts. With a stroke of 3.78 inches and a bore at 4.23 inches, these engines feature a full cast-iron block body with a very thick deck, making them specially designed to withstand high amounts of compression. These engines are meant for racing, being compatible with a number of performance parts. The 427 engines come in two distinct models – "top oiler" and "side oiler," which differentiate in how the oil reaches the cam and valve train. While there is no official power rating for 427s, people record them reaching over 400 horsepower. Inside the vast inventory on eBay, you can find lots of other engines as well, like the Ford 427 SOHC engine. Dubbed the "cammer," this is a favorite for drag racers, capable of releasing a staggering 616 horsepower at 7,000 RPM and 515 lb-ft. of torque at 3,800 RPM – when equipped with a single four-barrel carburetor. With dual four-barrel carburetors, the "cammer" hits a ridiculous 657 horsepower at 7,500 RPM and 575 lb-ft. of torque at 4,200 rpm.Shop the large inventory of motors, parts, accessories, and complete Ford car and truck engines!
