Yeah, I guess i should have clarified that.

400 ford, the true unsung hero of junkyard gold.

Great foundation, with beefy stock internals, 4" stroke 4" bore, heads with big valves, big ports, and a canted valve setup like big blocks use... But then ford smogged the shit out of them with tiny cams, retarded cam timing, and 2bbl carbs, to push every land yacht and pickup through the 70's and early 80's..
A recent survay of over 1000 trailer parks in the southeast found the 350 chevy out numbered the mullet by nearly 4:1, draw your own conclusion.
