1942 Ford Super Deluxe Sedan 221 CI flathead V-8 engine


Description


221 CI flathead V-8 engine
Downdraft carburetor
Column-shifted 3-speed manual transmission
Light Blue with Gray interior
Great Race-compliant speedometer
Auto Meter auxiliary gauges
Aluminum radiator
Painted steel wheels with trim rings and hubcaps
Whitewall tires
This would be the swan song for the 221 CI flathead V-8, as well—when the war ended and production resumed, Fords received an uprated 239 CI version of the engine that was good for 100 HP.
. Motivation comes from a 221 CI flathead V-8 breathing through a single-barrel, downdraft carburetor, making 96 HP and 156 lb-ft of torque from the factory. An aluminum radiator with electric fan keeps the mill cool, and cog changes come from the column-shifted, 3-speed manual gearbox with synchromesh. Inside, a Great Race-compliant speedometer takes the place of the factory unit, Autometer auxiliary gauges keep tabs on oil pressure and engine temperature, and Bakelite trim reminds us of the last vehicles the Greatest Generation produced before marching off to war.
