That big FE sure sounds mean! I'd love to put a few gallons of leaded 108 in the tank and take it for a drive.

I witnessed a bunch of very bad FE blocks in full vim and vigor at the nostalgia drags yesterday over in New Jersey.The FE engine series were of durable design,used in a variety of vehicles and had a relatively long production run Big yes,gluttons for fuel yes,heavy yes,significant piece of long standing American automotive history Big Yes. They are still capable,with the right add-ons,of pulling the front wheels Oh Yah Baby. Mike

Great fun, as a kid in a Ford / Mercury family, all the wagons and trucks we had were powered by FE 390 blocks.
Single 4 barrels, not fuel sippers, but boy they could tow/haul just about anything you dared to attach to them. Not particularly durable, rarely got more than 100k out of them. Plenty around if you want to play with them.

Wow, haven't heard mention of that motor in a long time. I had one that I took out of a tow truck. Never was a Chevy fan, but I loved the look of that intake (I was like 15 or 16 yo. And I sold it before ever firing it.


Great video, thank you for sharing. I forwarded the link to others. Our family has been Ford people for long time. Besides a couple of the newer Mustangs, we still have (underneath tarps that are covered with many many years of pigeon poop and dust) a 67' Fairlane 427 and 69' Cougar 428 Cobra jet.
It's fun remembering those cars and the fun we had with them. Thank you again

Guys over at Gas Monkey Garage did a bad ass Galaxies not too long ago. If I were that guy I'd pull the chrome trim off of it throw some clear on the body and drive it just that way. Hell, he should call Gas Monkey up and see if they want to buy another Galaxie.
