  Yes. The block was the natural progression from the "289 four bolt main" block made with an XE number. It was considered a "race only" block when it was made. Nothing in the Ford "production car" lineup made enough power to need it. You could not buy one "over the counter" at you local Ford dealer until '69 when it was used for the Boss 302.
