427fe worth
#1
            for years I have kept in contact with the owner of this engine. he said he is willing to sell his 427fe engine. his father built the engine over 30yrs ago. he turns the engine twice a month. he asked me to make a fair offer on it. he has no idea what its worth. I am not sure what I could offer on it. any ideas?

Is wanting every Mustang you see wrong?

Price depends on whether it's a center oiler or side oiler, and if it has low-riser, medium-riser or high riser heads.

Dad sold a 427 tunnel port engine with a 2x4 carbs last year. It was still in the Ford shipping crate from 1967. Dads notebook on it says it was an "HM" engine. He got $18,000 for it.

There were 2 other complete 427's that sold for $6,000 each. There were no notes about them.

Lastly he sold a 427 SOHC - notes say "Full Cammer - break in only" He got $28,000 for it.

A pallet of loose 427 parts - heads, cranks, intakes, ect sold for $10,000.

The numbers won't help you. A side oiler is easily spotted by a hump on the drivers side over the oil pan. The MT intake with the distributor mount is cool only. Tell him to keep it! It is worth $1,500. The headers are about $1,000. The heads are MR or LR b/c the MT intake was not made for other heads. Edelbrok heads are far better than any factory heads. Now the determination of value is difficult without disassembling the engine. A long block is worth maybe $6-8. If it is not for an original R code Galaxie it is not worth that much. The aftermarket blocks are far better. So it is not worth it to buy the factory stuff except for an original car. Especially on a sealed motor where the internals are questionable at best. What rods? What pistons etc.
An aftermarket block is $3,600
Edelbrock heads $1,500
Rotating assemply $2300 Balanced and ready for assembly
This is for all new stuff! It is far better than the old stuff from the 60's. When I built my Kirkham I had an original block and TP heads. I got rid of them and bought all new. So it depends what you ae going to do

my old 67 coupe that I sold my cousin is a factory 390 car. the engine needs to be completely rebuilt. so me and my cousin thought maybe its best to do this 427 and drop in it. and keep the 390 in the garage.

There were 2 other complete 427's that sold for $6,000 each. There were no notes about them. Exactly they are more like the one mentioned

Lastly he sold a 427 SOHC - notes say "Full Cammer - break in only" He got $28,000 for it. A cammer is a different animal

A pallet of loose 427 parts - heads, cranks, intakes, ect sold for $10,000. That's crazy unless there were some cammer parts there

Just looking at it, I'd say it's worth about $6k-$7k. The cast headers are worth about $1600-$2000. Be sure to check to see if it's a 427 and not a 406. But either is valuable in their own circles. Date codes and casting numbers are everything with FE engines.

And then there is that Boss 302 in the background...

If you can buy it for 4,500.00, I don't see you getting hurt. I also would not consider this an unfair price as you are buying an engine that might be useable and might still need a rebuild

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

We were so glad that all of the parts he had were sold before he passed. The total sale amount was well over 100K! Absolutely Crazy

We had no idea what he had or what it was worth and would have basically given the parts away if it had been left for us to handle.

Even in his 90's he was sharp as a tack.
