This is amazing. Talk about machinist talent, This guy has it in spades. Mash on the link for the complete story and lots of photos. Jim

My current project is a 1/6th scale Chevrolet 327 cu in V8. Based on a 1964 365 hp Corvette motor, measurements have been taken from an actual engine as to be most accurate. The head and block began as billet aluminum that have been painstakingly machined on a Bridgeport-style mill. The 5-main crank has real babbit bearings, while the cam is a scale 30-30 Duntov.

My brother has a 1928 Ford Roadster that is running a 1964 (?) 375 HP solid lifter 327 in it, but rather than the original 4 barrel set up he is running a 3-2 set up, the thing scats like a rat in heat ... Talk about the real deal, he has turned down a lot of money for just the engine from some local collectors ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

Jim,

I had a 375HP/327 in my 1965 Chevelle, it had a Aluminum high rise manifold and Holley on it, with a Mucie 220 and 12 bolt 3:90 posi in it ... This was before I got into the Mopars ... It was factory and not fuel injected in 1965, not sure about 1964 ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

WTP,

The 375 HP 327's were Rochester fuel injected. The 365 HP version had a single 4-barrel carburetor. That was the only difference. 30-30 Duntov, solid lifters, 202 heads and Delco-Remy single-point distributors in both.

Respectfully,
Jon Reitz

There is a museum here in Windsor, Vermont, The American Precision Museum, that has a model machine show every summer. Tons of this type of stuff on display and running. There was one exhibit that had a complete machine shop, everything running off of pullies in the ceiling. Whole thing was a couple of feet square. Amazing stuff.

Jim,

I'll have to check it out ... I was not trying to call you a liar just know the 1965 Chevelle was supposed to be a 327/375 and it was not injected but did have solids in it ... I thought only the Vettes were injected ..? The Chevelle I had was not worth a damn unless you put the slicks on it because it would turn the street tires like you were sitting in a water box on dry pavement ... It was a handfull thats for sure ... Wish I still had that car ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
