In 1961 Ford's success in NASCAR and NHRA with its 390 was quickly evaporating. Competitor's 400 cubic inch or larger engines were mopping up.

The answer was the FE series 406. More than a bored out 390 the 406 was recast utilizing thicker cylinder walls plus more substantial pistons and connecting rods.

Two versions of the 406 were offered a three Holley Carb version and a single Holley 4 barrel such as offered here. Solid lifter 385 hp @ 5800 with 444 lb. ft. of torque @ 3400 rpm.

Incredible time machine that looks, runs and drives like a new '62. Driven only 2700 miles in the last 20 years there are some (very minor) typical and expected mechanical issues that should be addressed - nothing that a back yard mechanic couldn't easily handle. If you're seriously interested in this amazing 406 pick up the phone (215-631-1776) and call Friendly Wayne or Pete for the run down. Respectfully we will not respond to email requests.

This is a very special Ford that is worth our very fair asking price.


Only close offers will be considered.
As with all the cars we offer, we encourage independent inspection.
