Do you mean how many were manufactured or how many survivors are around? There's no way to know that.

Google it, find a Wikipedia page for it.

1966 427 Ford sohc how many original engines?

The 427's first appeared in some Ford factory prepared racing cars available through a special order. It was Ford's intention to use that engine on the NASCAR circuit BUT they had to have a production run of a specified number of engines on the street before they could use the engine on the track. The first 427 I saw was produced at the Pico Rivera plant and delivered to a dealer who supported Drag racing in the LA area. It was using a stronger upgraded block in the FE issued block but different than the 406 tri-power. In 1964 they were an engine/auto combination in demand with Drag racers. By 1965 they were becoming more common. They had a top oiler and a side oiler. Then came the Police Special " 427 Cammer." By the 1966 model year they were pretty easy to obtain.

1966 427 ford sohc how many origianl engines?

Here is my '63 with a Cammer of the '66 manufacture. The engine was bought in the crate from Pearson Ford at 12th and Broadway, San Diego, CA. in '66. My brother was a San Diego cop and they had six Mercury Pursuit cars working the major highways with them until 1962. Good engines and lots of power.

Except there was no way there were 427 Cammers in 1962. The Cammer was released in 1964 For Nascar purposes, and the pushrod 427 in 1963.

I think Nascar outlawed them before Ford got enough made. I'm not sure if there ever was accurate documentation on how many left the factory and the way Ford counted it might not be accurate anyway. Probably way more went out in crates than in cars. I have read they double counted some of the 63 lightweights by taking them around and running them down the line twice so they might have done the same thing on other special built cars too. I have also heard of those engines turning up in some weird places. A person whom I trust, swore he knew a kid whose mom had one in a 4 door Mercury and had bought it new. She didn't even know what she had but her kid brought it to high school shop class to fix a leaking oil pan.

Ok I posted a question. If you have no idea what you are talking about why post an answer on somthing that I already know and had nothing to do with the question to begin with. Im not trying to put anyone down but info on another engine is not wanted on my side. The question that started was how many 427 SOHC engines are still out there or how many have been produced. if you cant answer that post on someone elses question...

I can't swear to the accuracy but here is some info. The wiki page, go about halfway down to the racing section. Not an answer to "How many are there?" but some info to answer questions that have come up. Love google!
