Ford 460 V8

The Ford 460 V8 engine was part of the "Ford 385" series of V8 engines which included the Ford 429 V8. These two engines proved to be the last of Ford’s V8 big block engines. Beginning in 1968, the Ford 460 was part of the 385 series due to its 3.85 stroke and manufactured at Ford’s plant in Lima, Ohio.

The engine was featured in the Ford Torino, Thunderbirds, and Econoline models among many others. The 460 also had a “Police Interceptor” version in the 1970s. The 460, although discontinued in the mid-1990s, remains a popular big block engine that is widely used in motor homes, boats, and industrial vehicles.
