building a 327

i am thinking of rebuilding a 327 i have , its a .030 over steel crank small journal motor with 2.02 / 1.6 heads that have have 62 cc chambers . i have heard this is the combo that made 375 hp . anyone know if this is right ? if so which cam , carb were used ? where can i find the exact specs to recreate this ? anyone have any thoughts on how more power can be made with these parts used as a starting point ? (no bottle)

The fuelie motor was rated at 375 horsepower in 1964. Later years 327 were rated at 300 and 350hp. They had forged pistons usually around 10 or 11 to 1 compression. I believe only the fuelie motor had the mechanical camshaft.

The fuelie would have been a 375 horse engine. The 365 was the same engine with a small Holley and high rise intake... the same 202 heads... and the same solid lifter cam. These were 11:1 compression or better, and had "pop up", or domed pistons. The flat tops might mean a 300 horse shortblock, or a piston change. You will have trouble finding fuel, if running the domed pistons, unless you lower the compression somehow.

A friend of mine bought a 65 chevelle(malibu) new, ordered with a 327/365, Muncie. If I'm not mistaken, that motor had a 30/30 solid cam. The 375hp might use the same cam, I think the only difference was the carb/intake...correct me if I'm wrong. I think Crane still makes "copies" of these cams...but there's better ones out there now. I did buy one of those copies...but I gave it away before I tried it out (the specs didn't look impressive).

anyone want to guess what the compression is with the flat tops and a 62 cc head . probably use an off the shelf felpro head gasket , just a general idea . im guessing somewhere between 9:1 and 9.5:1
