3 Answers


I don't think so. I've seen them with mostly 351 and 400


nope the Ford 390 was use by Ford in the '60's in certain vehicles.....https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_FE_engine


I think 76 was the last year for the FE but those were in pickups. Medium and heavy trucks used them up to 78. The last year for the 390 in a T-bird was probably 1967.
