According to Modern Rodding Enthusiast Books, a 1968 Ford 360 has 401 horsepower. This is virtually the same as the Ford 390 introduced in 1961, which came in two and four barrels.
In addition to the horsepower, the Ford 360 had the same 4.05-inch bore as the Ford 390 and the same 3.50-inch stroke as the Ford 352.
