Submitted by the owner:

“Dad got the car from the original owner in the 90’s and been sitting since. We pulled the engine out awhile back and have been soaking it. Found the rear intake gasket blown out and the clutch was down to the rivets. Pulled the pan and the engine is clean as new, hope to unstick it and roll on. Even after sitting all those years there is no rust inside the bores as best I can see.”

    sorry but Q does not stand for 427 . R code is the 427. Q is 390

    Actually Q and R are both 427 engines. You might be thinking of the 1962 Galaxie. That year the Q was a 390.
