None.

The 427 SOHC "Cammer" motor was never offered in any car. It was strictly an over the parts counter engine.

It is also unique - it is the only engine ever to be outlawed by NASCAR (what it was built for) BEFORE it was ever installed in a NASCAR Stock Car - courtsey of Chrysler

Quote:
All these engines were essentially hand-built with racing in mind. Combustion chambers were fully machined to reduce variability. Nevertheless, Ford recommended blueprinting the engines before use in racing applications. With a single four-barrel carburetor they were rated at 616 horsepower (459 kW) at 7,000 rpm & 515 ft lbs of torque @ 3,800 rpm, and while equipted with dual four-barrel carburetors they made 657 horsepower (490 kW) at 7,500 rpm & 575 ft/lbs of torque @ 4,200 rpm. Ford sold them via the parts counter, the single four-barrel model as part C6AE-6007-363S, the dual carburetor model as part C6AE-6007-359J for $2350.00 (as of October, 1968). Weight of the engine was 680 lb (308 kg).[21]

Lee, are you going to include Dealer Installed Options-- like the dual four-barrel carburetor options for '69-- $500 bought twin 600-cfm Holleys on a cross-ram manifold?

I know Caddy put a 500 CI engine in 1970 that had enough torque to pull a house (555 ft pounds I think).. But sure there were a few with higher ratings than that.
I remember when I was very young in 75 (like 4 years old), my dad buying a '71 (I think) Buick Electra convertable with a 455 in it from a friend. That thing was a torque king, but doubt it had more than the 500 Caddy motor.

Man my dad loved that car, but when the gas thing hit the fan in 77 or whatever, he had to get rid of it.. I think he lost a piece of his soul that day.

I don't know anyone who would consider a Caddy a muscle car. And that is the topic of this thread and all questions.

Yes, the 1971 Caddy 500 CI engine is factory rated at 535 Ft. Ibs of torque but again, it wasn't an engine ever installed in a muscle car.

ANSWER:

The Buick 455. It was rated at 510 Ft. lbs of torque - more than any other muscle car engine and was available in the GS series of mid sized cars which made them muscle cars with the 1970 GSX being the best of them all.
