The Ford 390 is an FE big bolck yes the 390 AMC was just considered a 390CI V-8 was no real lable as big or small block. . .
But I would have call it rare and illusive medium blocked engine.
It Rev's like a small block and pulls like a big block.
The 390AMC 4bbl made 68' & 69' 315hp n 425tq 70' & 71' 325hp n 435tq both reved reved to 6 grand, the 69'-71' 390AMC 8bbl made 435hp n 480tq reved to 8 grand. . .
When in stalled in 2,800LB AMX or 3,200LB Javelin with gearing choices of 3.15's n 3.55's Auto trans and 3.55's n 4.44's Manual trans , it would really Rip.
Giving it the ability to run Ford Dodge GM muscle cars. . .tho it was really classified as a Sports car the AMX was, so race the Big 3 on drag strip Friday then race with BMW n benz on the road course Sunday so to speak . . .
