That appears to just be a 429 BB Ford motor produced in Lima, Ohio, is there something else to know about it other than it came out of an industrial truck? It was one of their 385-series motors, which included the 370/420/460's. That factory also made the MEL V-8's (Mercury, Edsel, Lincoln), they were replaced by the 385-series. Google is your friend...

What's your question??
You can never have too much power, just not enough traction...
