Ford has one long been, Chevrolet the first in 1918. With 4.7-liter engine, a carburetor and three-bearing crankshaft. But this V8 was completely unsuccessful. Now there is a short design-V8 with more power and even 15 kg less weight than the Blue-Flame series six-cylinder. In addition a 12-V electrical system and a start automatic for more comfort. In the carburetor also falls away the difficult synchronization.

Above in the picture the motor is in each case visible from the front. Pity, that the carburetor and the large air filter cost so much height. But after all, the gravity is low. In addition to the direct current generator also atttract attention the blue oil filter mounted on this engine, the motor oil simultaneously cooled. He is originally not designed for this engine and installed since the year of construction 1956. Of the other side the fuel pump is visible and from both sides the simple distributor. Few is remarkable except a coolant pump with a fixed fan wheel and an oil-filler neck.
