The "Vigilante" AMC 327 V8 has a cast iron block and cylinder head with overhead valves and hydraulic lifters. The Vigilante was built by AMC and is not the popular Chevy 327 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, so as I understand it, the AMC 327 V8 does not have the same bell housing bolt pattern used in later AMC engines.
