Re: 427 chevy engine
what year did the chevy 427 engine come out, and what car had it first.
In general for the avg public gm mfg'd the 427 bbc from late 65 (for 66 model) thru 69 in full size cars & vette.
1966 model yr vette & impalla were 1st cars for the general public to buy with 427 bbc in them not counting any development that was done on the 427 bbc prior to 1966 like in racing / nascar etc .
The 427 was discontinued for pass cars in 69 for the 454 to take over for the 1970 model yr,but trucks used the 427 tall deck for many yrs into i think the mid to late 80's.
Copo/Yenko/Motion chevelle/Nova/Camaro with a 427 bbc were a different story.
