In the back of an old dimly light shop was a SOHC 427. It had been sitting there for 20 year. 2 miles from my house. Built in the early 90s for a drag car project. The owner died and a cousin inherited it. Never started. It was a good thing. During disassembly it was found that the cam gear was loose on the shaft. Everything else looked great. H beam rods, JE pistons, 428 crank. OEM block number 264. We are going though it now. Plans are to put it in my Model A coupe on 32 rails. Just call me lucky. Never thought I would own a SOHC 427

    That should motorvate a Model A quite nicely.

    Very Cool! Even if you do not install it in a car it would make a great piece of art for the living room!
    In my opinion they are by far the most impressive looking power plant.

    You are one lucky guy. That would be my first choice for my 57 if one happen to fall into my lap.

  15. Great find, amazing it was just put away and neglected. I like your plan where the engine is exposed for all to see.

    Hoowhee, *cough, cough, cough*! Fabulous DREAM find. I hope you bought at least 1 lotto ticket when you did the deal, & another when you found out it's condition but wasn't started... :D . Good on you.

    But it only has 2 bolt mains. I’ll give you $200.00 for it and come get it. It’s only going to go into an old Chevy.

    Awesome score. If you need help or have questions, check in with Jay Brown at FEpower.org. he is a straight shooter. Never send $ to the SOHC guy in Romulus Michigan, he has scammed many.

    Wow wow wow, that’s just too cool and a great find. I see a guy at one local swap meet with SOHC valve covers and intake from time to time and thought that was cool to see but you found a whole motor.

  26. Please guys, hit that "full image" button.
     
  27. For those of you aren't familiar with these, that is the cross bolted side oiler block with the screw in soft plugs. I do have an owner's manual if you might have any questions.
