    I've heard that story before and the 428 was actually a 426 but that number and 427 were already taken by other engines. Gosh I love the sixties!

  12. Ford liked to give you options.

    427 - (really 425 ci) but good enough to beat Ferrari at their own game.
    428 - a cheaper, much more mass producible version of the 427 that actually measures to 426.5 ci.
    429 - First of the Lima/385 series of big blocks designed to replace the MEL family.
    430 - The First 400 Hp rated V8 offered in North America in the 1958 Mercury Marauder.
