Ford 292 V8 Engine

The Ford 292 V8 engine first appeared in 1955 and was used in Ford production cars until the end of 1962. Ford kept their 292 V8 around for the popular Ford F-100 pick-up truck until 1964. The Ford 292 gained quite a bit of popularity due to the fact that it was used as the standard base engine in the all new Ford Thunderbird. It also was used in the Ford Fairlane as well as several models of the Ford Station Wagon. Another interesting fact regarding the 292 was that its crankshaft was often used by car enthusiast (with some machining and custom pistons) to increase the stroke in the Ford 289 engine that appeared in 1963.
