It is approx. 364 HP @ 4600RPM
It varied year to year as the changed Combustion Chamber size.

You are correct thinking it is too high, Only the early high compression 460's had 365 HP in 1972 they dropped to 275 with the torque down to 375 from 500 ft lbs in 1969. There might be a change in 72 as to how they were rated but there is NO WAY the 8.5:1 comp engines make as much HP as the 10.5:1 comp engines 0f 1968 to 1970
Just find a book that has specs in it and you can see for yourself.
