The engine – which is being constructed entirely out of aftermarket components – is a 347 c.i.d. (4.125? bore and 3.250? stroke) SBF based on a Dart 302 block and Pro 1 aluminum heads. It will have 9.5:1 compression and is estimated to produce over 400 horsepower on pump gas.  It’s ideally suited for use in a street rod, Cobra kit car, classic truck, Mustang or “restomod” Ford application.

Participating firms (in alphabetical order) are: ARP, ATI, Champion, Comp Cams, Crane Cams Ignitions, Dart, Edelbrock, Fel-Pro, Hedman, Joe Gibbs Driven, Mahle, Manley, Milodon, Moroso, Powermaster, Scat, Speed-Pro and Total Seal.

Proceeds from the engine sale will benefit the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund, which is a recognized 501(c)3 charity. The SMSF has given out nearly two million dollars in scholarships over the years to students (university, college or trade school) seeking a career in the automotive industry.

More information about the program can be found at www.SEMA.org/scholarships.

Ongoing information about the engine and specially prepared Dodge Charger and Avenger automobiles that are being auctioned to benefit the SMSF and the eBay auction can be found at http://is.gd/SEMAauctions.
