The 240 was available in everything except the Falcon and the Mustang
based on it. In 1969 the 250 cube 6 was available in the 'stang - but
you are right - never a 240, much less the 300. The ONLY six in '67
was the 200, as the 170 was history by then.(at least in the Mustang).
It was still available in the falcon until 1972.
The 427 was (at least officially and theoretically) available in the
Mustang in 1968 - one year only and EXTREMELY rare. It was
(under-)rated at 390HP. I believe it was a "W" code and 2 or 3 may
have actually been produced before it was removed from the option list
in December of 1987. It was NOT available with a 4 speed - only
automatics were spec'ed. It was a $622 option
That is right.. The 427 was shown only with the automatic, and I believe
a special automatic.
My 428 had a C6. but it was a special run of C6. Ford claimed that engine
put out something over 400 hp, but I think it was specked at 390. Buying
car was one of the mistakes of my life.
If you go back far enough, "full size" cars also got the 240. I think the
last "consumer" car usage of the 240 was the 1972 Full Size Ford (Custom;
Custom 500; Galaxie 500). I am pretty sure cars never got the 300 six.
The 144, 170, 200, 221 (overseas only), 250 Small six family originated as
an engine for the Falcon line of compact cars and Econoline vans. I think
it was never used in "full sized Fords" but was common in intermediate and

Nope. No 427 in 67. The 390 was the big engine in '67
68 got 427 in very limited quantities (possibly 2 actually built and
sold) and 428.
'69 got 428 and 429 (428 in Mack 1 only, 429 only in BOSS.
1970, same as 1969.
1971, no more 428
1972, no more 429
