Ford 272 V8 Engine

The Ford 272 engine was a small blip on the screen for the Ford Motor Company and was produced from 1955 to 1957. The 272 was overshadowed a lot by the Ford 292 V8 which was released the same year and used in the all new Thunderbird. Probably the most popular car that the 272 ever saw use in was the 1955 and 1957 Ford Fairlane. Most of the more family oriented cars that Ford produced from 1955 to 1957 saw use of the 272 V8 or the 223 inline six.
