Me and my dad built this engine, but mostly me, it has stock bore, just
honed, stock crank, just polished, new rings, new gaskets, new bearings new
oil pump, stock flattop pistons with new wrist pins, new 390 cam, new
lifters, new seals, new water pump, new fuel pump, edelbrock performer 390
intake, edelbrock 750 cfm manual choke carb, hardened valve seats, new
keepers, new clutch and pres. plate, new starter, clark 265 5 speed
transmission, MSD ready to run Distributor, MSD plug wires that need to be
shortened, Autolite plugs, MSD Blaster coil.
The engine had low miles on it when I rebuilt it but it had been sitting
awhile. Originally was in a 1966 Ford Galaxy with a automatic. I took a 330
M/D out of a 66 Ford B700 School bus and took the bellhousing, flywheel,
and trans for my engine. It was going to go in my 1947 Ford truck, but then
I got a 43 Ford truck with a good running flathead 6 in it and decided to
just keep the flathead. Don't quite yet know what to do with this engine
Ford 390 FE dyno run - stroked to 445 cubes - 521 horsepower
This is a Survival Motorsports built 445 FE, based on a Ford 390 engine.
Compression is 9.8:1 and it is running on pump premium. Heads and intake
are modified Edelbrock parts. Cam is a custom hydraulic roller for great
power and no break-in worries. Carb is a Holley 750 double pumper. Oil
pan on this one is a special Canton dual sump "T" type for rack & pinion
conversions on earlier Mustangs - pretty trick.
Engine made 521 horsepower at 5800 RPM,
revving freely past 6000. Torque was really strong and flat curve - over
530 from 4000RPM all the way through 5000RPM.

Ford Fairlanes Being Built
Inside the factory where the fourth generations of Ford Fairlanes are being
built. Probably at the Lorain, Ohio assembly plant. Welding, and lead
applied to round out the curves. They're painted, the engines installed,
glass goes one, water tested, headlights aimed and out to the car hauler
they go. We see a well dressed couple looking at a Fairlane.
he Fairlane name was moved to Ford's new intermediate, introduced for the
1962 model year, to bridge the gap between the compact Ford Falcon and the
full-sized Galaxie, making it a competitor for GM's A-body 'senior
compacts'. With an overall length of 197 in (5004 mm) and a wheelbase of
115.5 in (2934 mm), it was 16 in (406 mm) longer than the Falcon and 12.3
in (312 mm) shorter than the Galaxie.
Like the Falcon, the Fairlane had a unibody frame, but the body
incorporated an unusual feature Ford dubbed 'torque boxes', four boxed
structures in the lower body structure designed to absorb road shock by
moving slightly in the vertical plane. Suspension was a conventional
short-long arm independent arrangement in front, with Hotchkiss drive in
the rear. The Fairlane was initially offered only in two-door or four-door
sedan body styles.
