360 engine performance specs

I'm familiar with the 300 I6 and 352 FE engine specs, but I can't find performance number on the 360 FE. I have a '66 F250 with the 300 six that I love, but I've been looking at a '67 with a 360 in it. I would HOPE that the torque numbers occur at a relatively low rpm...

How does the 360 compare to the older 352? I know both suck gas, but is the 360 as torquey or not, and how durable is it? You see a lot of ads for late 60's trucks that say "engine rebuilt at 60k or 80k", why did people need to rebuild so early in an engines life?

the 352 will have a little more power. engines didn't last long due to **** poor lubrication. The oil has only made big advances in the last 5 years before that it was still a very crude product with lots of wax in it. About 15 years ago it was ok for a UOA to show FE at 30-45 ppm today we demand single digit i have been getting 5 in my 2003 ford. the 352 should make 365 or so FT pounds at 2800 rpm.

If the engine was rebuilt at that mileage, how many miles do they currently have on them? If you are comparing low miles over an extended time frame, then you can assume dry rotting set in.. Also, the 67 trucks came with a 352, it was 68 when they went to 360 and 390 options.

Soooooo... what are the torque and hp curves for the 360? My sources for the 352 say 172 hp @4k (net) and 295 ft-lb torque @ 2k (net). How does the 360 compare?

Thanks!

Those number aren't too much more than the 352 numbers. I wonder why the small increment up to 360 displacement?

Can't give you actual numbers, but I've got a bone stock down to the water heated 2V carb spacer fresh 100% rebuilt 360 in a 72 F-250 4x4 and I have a pretty much stock fuel injected 4.9L six in a 70 F100 2wd. The 4.9L is much faster and would kill the 360 in acceleration, but the 360 will tow anything and has brutal low end torque with nothing up top. The 360 gets great mileage 17 to 20 with 4.10's a 4 speed and 33" all terrains. 360's are good engines. I enjoy driving a bone stock 360 4 speed truck around and people are suprised to find out after riding in the truck that it's a bone stock 360 2V engine. I also have a 70K original mile 72 f-250 2wd 360 powered automatic truck. I don't know why, but seams like this truck has a little more power. That truck sat for 13 years after a tree fell on it. I got it for free, got it running in 2 hours with a new starter, fuel pump and gas. Changed the oil too. Can't really drive it with the cab crushed in, but lots of good parts.

It allowed Ford to use the blocks with the same bore of 4.05", for the 390 and the 360. The stroke is the same in the 352 and the 360, just a .050" over bore.
