Never have been a big Fordnatic but the 390 was around for a long time and was one of those nearly indestructible engines. They can still be found in wrecking yards on occasion but they don't last very long when they do show up. High School buddy had one in a '68 F-100 / 3 on the tree back @ '92. He wanted to go bigger but his Pop wouldn't let him swap in a 460/Toploader until the 390 was done for. He tried, HARD, but last time I talked to him, it was still going strong.
