We've seen a lot of 460 Ford engines in trucks, too, both carbureted and fuel injected, but we were very surprised to see this mint-looking 460 in a '71 Lincoln Continental. These 385-series 460 engines were phased into the Lincoln line in 1968 to replace the outgoing MEL-series 462-cid engines. The '71-and-older engines sported 10.5:1 compression ratios and 365 hp. Starting in 1972, compression dropped to 8.5:1 and fell to as low as 8.0:1 by 1973. Power output plummeted to a depressing 220 hp. Grab one of these and drop on some Ford Racing Cobra Jet heads or Kaase P51 heads. Put that combo in a Fox-body Mustang, and hold on for dear life.
