Ford didn't make a 396. It's probably a 390 unless it is bored out

yea 396 is chevrolet , there was a "small block" stroker and the big block 396 as we all know.
The 396 replaced the 348-409 web-foot. They also made a 427 web-foot but it was a very limited production for racing only.
The 396 evolved into the 427 and 454. This is the Rat. It's a good reliable motor that has few problems. The big difference is the valve lay-out which is similar to the old Chrysler 318.
The 396-cubic-inch (6.5 L) V8 was first introduced in the 1965 Corvette as the L78 option and in the Z16 Chevelle

now ...the 1963 model year, Ford ditched the 292 Y-Block V8 with the new small block 260 and 289 V8s that were originally developed for the Fairlane. They were also offered on the Falcon Sprint and Mustang. Ford continued to offer the FE series 352, and 3 versions of the 390 V8 (Regular, High performance, and Police). now the 390 was a special option for the galaxy but was soon thrown out , the 390 was not reliable and known to self destruct and scatter all its guts on the ground!!! damm fords lol

Those are good cars. My friend's have several of those they drive to car shows locally. The 390 was used in cars and trucks. It's a very reliable engine.

We ride the back roads in West Va and often run up on cars, trucks, tractors and other machinery sitting in a barn or field. This is one of them.
