The largest-displacement 385 engine, the 460 was developed as the successor for the 462 MEL V8 and the 390 FE/FT V8. From 1968 to 1971, the 460 was rated at 365 gross hp. Succeeding the FE engine family, Ford developed multiple high-performance versions of the 385 engine family from 1969 to 1971, all based on the 429. Sharing a 4.36-inch bore with the 429, the 460 was designed with a 3.85-inch stroke. This particualr 460 engine has mostly NOS replacement parts used during the restoration as available with the entire engine, engine compartment, drivetrain, rear end, all interior components (except AC registers), and trunk items replaced or restored.
