Fun Fact
The Ford 427 SOHC engine is the only engine effectively banned by NASCAR before even making it to the track (thus, the legendary status).
In 1964, Ford and Chrysler were in a battle for supremacy on the NASCAR circuit. Ford had won the majority of the races in '64 thanks to its 427 Hi-Riser engine, but Richard Petty scored an upset victory at the Daytona 500 using the new Chrysler 426 HEMI engine. Even more impressive, HEMI-powered cars finished 1-2-3 at the race and threatened to change the entire power-balance within NASCAR racing.
Ford's answer to the potent, game-changing HEMI engine was the 427 SOHC Cammer-an engine that not only changed the game but also changed the rules in NASCAR racing.
Based essentially on the 427 Hi-Riser short block, the 427 SOHC utilized a forged steel crankshaft and "hemi-head" pistons. The biggest change came on the top-end where a single overhead camshaft was placed over each of the redesigned and fully machined hemispherical-style cylinder heads. An idler shaft replaced the camshaft on the inside of the engine and drove the distributor and oil pump; a set of non-drilled steel bushings replaced the three rear cam bearings to seal off the oil passages. The new overhead cam engine went from concept to reality in just 90 days!
