How can I identify the motor in my 1964 Ford 600 dump truck? When I got it was told it was a 427.
Here are a couple photos of my 1964 Ford engine, I was told it was a 427 when I bought it 8 years ago. I have no use for this anymore and am going to sell it all or part it out. If it is not worth anything I am taking the truck to the junkyard. The motor runs very strong.

look toward the back of the engine block on the right hand side, above the starter. You should find the casting number here.

The 427s used in heavy trucks where different than the passenger car models. Too bad, or it would be worth much more. I believe if memory serves correct, they where wider across the deck.

Hello in 64 ford used 3 fe block engines yours is definately an fe block and definately NOT a 427 they used a 330 a 361 and a 391 about the only way to tell them apart is to measure the pistons.They good news is all the other parts are the same ie gaskets tune up and accessories with the four barrel I would say yours is probably a 391.There is a small chance there is a tag on the bolt that holds the coil on.Ford Never used the 427 in trucks.the earlier guy was thinking of chevy with the different 427 block in cars and trucks
