If the engine in your 65 F100 is the original engine than it is a 352 FE. 1965 is the first year Ford put the FE in a pickup even though they had been using it in cars since 1958. Of course it could have been changed to a 360 or a 390, but personally I don't know why anybody in there right mind would bother to put a 360 in (that is just my personal opinion on the 360).

The difference between the 360 and the 390 is the crank and rods. The 360 uses the 390 4-barrel pistons. If you put 390 crank and rods in your 360 you have a 390. A great way to improve a 360 in my opinon (again).

The 360, 390 and the 410 have a 4.05" bore.
332 and 352 have a 4.00" bore.
406 and 428 have a 4.13 bore.
427 has a 4.23" bore.

332 have a 3.30" stroke.
352 and 360 have a 3.50" stroke.
390, 406 and 427 have a 3.78" stroke.
410 and 428 have a 3.98" stroke.
