Probably a bar bet on the Buick. Or maybe someone got a tubing bender for Christmas instead of the tig welder he really wanted.

Here is my new favorite engine.What the heck is it you ask? Well all you 1932 Model B fans almost had this. This is Henry Ford's 1925 design, eight cylinder engine. Destined for installation in Ford's new up-coming car it was still being tested after the Model A was being produced. Henry got drug away from his four cylinder engines because the rest of the automobile world (Chevy) had moved on to sixes. Henry said lets go one better and this is the result The mighty air cooled X-8.

That is wild BB! I have to assume it's in the Henry Ford Museum in Michigan? That is one of the vacation stops I want to make on a future road trip.

Actually this one is for sale. a mere $3,000,000 and it's yours! I stumbled across it doing research on another subject. Here is a couple of sites with some info. Who knew?

Vintage Ford Facts: Henry Ford's X-8 Engine

Eli Apolzon and daughter Ruth Family Page * * * Austin, Texas - Henry Ford's 1924 X-8 engine and <br>How it will be used to raise dollars for Special Needs Children.

Here's a picture of a google of Ford X- engines. Some of them were for tractors.

I am sorry, I have seen WAY too many small block Chevy's to last five lifetimes. Sure I still see one once in a while worth looking at but they are few and far between for me. Just a personal opinion, nothing personal towards anyone who owns one.

When I saw your thumbnail photo I didn't even click on it.....then I read Cobalts response and clicked on it. LOLOLOL I love it!

There was a guy here in town who had a real nice 69 Camaro with a 383 Chrysler in it.

When I had my 64 Vette, I was seriously thinking about putting a 401 Buick in it. I really did, I was thinking how much fun it would be to open it up at a Vette show, then I thought how I honestly could end up getting in a fist fight, people get pretty serious about this stuff.

Brian
Back in the mid-50's it wasn't unusual to see early Vettes' with Cadillac or other larger GM V-8's under the hood. Hot Rod magazine did a Corvette/Caddy engine story IIRC.

2.9 efi change to 2.9 carb

hI again
I'm not to familiar with this posting but the only way to achieve a convertion from efi to a carb on a 2.9 ford cologne engine is to use the 1973 mercury capri 2.6 liter engine which as the same intake passage and also water passage then the 2.9 liter but you will need the 2.6 offenhausser intake and the 4 bbl 390 holley on it and in those year there was no computer or injection and no smog equipment on these cars so in othe word you dont need to retain the injection sensor etc and that engine will run like hell specially if you put a hotter cam jus call offenhauuser and ask if you can buy that intake and you eill see what I mean
