Correct. This is one of the beautiful things about the FE, it's interchangeability, much like the SBC.
Production began in 1958 and was not fully retired until 1976 and some of the high performance parts released by FORD are unbelievable. There is also still a very strong aftermarket for it and all types of updates.
The 360 and 390 has the same bore size and if a 428 crank (3.98" stroke) was inserted in either, it would come out to a 410 CI.
