The "Vigilante" 327 V8 has a cast nodular iron block and cylinder head with overhead valves and hydraulic lifters, forged steel crankshaft and connecting rods. This motor was engineered in '56 by AMC, and is also known as the "Rambler V8". The AMC 327 was used in Jeep full size trucks and Wagoneers from 1965 until 1968. AMC did not standardize engine bell housing bolt patterns until the early 70s. The AMC 327 V8 does not have the same bell housing bolt pattern used in later AMC engines.
