I dont know if it was mentioned, but the 427 truck engines from Chevy have a recess in the cylinder at the top to lower the compression ratio unlike 427 car engines which do not.
Gmc had a 637 V8. The International 461 was a smaller bore V549. They also had a V401, but the RD-450s and RD-501 International 6 cylinder gassers were far better. Even bigger was Macks 707 6 cylinder gasser, which was a flathead if I remember correctly.
