Few new engines in automotive history have been as quickly embraced by performance-minded gearheads as was Ford’s V-8 in 1932. Deuce roadsters were racing–and winning–almost as soon as their fenders could be unbolted. When the new L-head version was released motorists of nearly all stripes came to embrace the affordable engine that gave Ford cars performance to equal cars costing several times as much. Ford’s vision–and gamble–paid off handsomely and set Ford apart from his competitors. More than two decades would pass–a veritable eon in the automobile industry–before another engine would offer the excitement generated by Henry Ford’s beloved flathead V-8. This is the ultimate resource for the Ford flathead V-8 engine. It guides readers through everything from engine architecture to selecting the right engine for the right project, building and rebuilding the engine, and buying a crate engine. Whether you’re looking to hot-rod or restore your flathead, this book is a required addition to your workbench.
