Franklin D. Roosevelt liked it and Charles Lindbergh too, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow so much that they next to it were killed, also John Dillinger probably the greatest bank robber of all time. The latter two have wrote even Henry Ford and thanked for this model. Obviously the bootleggers it has proved good service during the prohibition.

After the Model T and the Ford Model A, the V8 engine is Henry Ford's third stroke of genius in 1932. Six cylinders, he does not like, so there's car now with either four or eight cylinders. There will probably never be a V8 with so few parts. This reduces the production costs and thus makes easier the leap to the more powerful version.

Initially the engine with 48 kW (65 hp) is installed in the Ford-A. To Germany it comes in the more streamlined body of the successor just since 1937 and gradually even more power. The German version of the body is not identical with the American.

Much wheelbase ensures comfortable sitting conditions, front always with a continuous bench seat and steering-column gear change, as a two-door with single fold-down seat backs. The rear seat backrest can be set up horizontally and allows, except over the tailgate, a second access to the luggage compartment. Also the foldable spare wheel support can serve as an extension for long objects.

The Ford V8 is available in different variants, today rather popular are the coupes and convertibles rather than the four-door. From theunsynchronized transmission it is said, the grip to the handle of the steering wheel is so rare needed in the face of the engine torque. There already the steering forces are greater. Interesting that the engine receives an increased cooling for Germany. Should be the construction of highways here further advanced than in the USA at that time? 05/12
