Ford Flathead V8-60 engine availability?
« on: 07 May, 2019, 09:39:58 pm »
I'm toying with an idea that requires one of the little Ford Flathead V8-60 engines.
I know that here in Australia, they're like Hens Teeth, but I'm keen to know if anybody has one that they'd part with, or know of one somewhere, waiting to be saved?
Cheers,
Rob

Not sure if Castlemaine Rod Shop, Victoria has complete engines but they were doing the spares for them. I guess if you ask enough people one might turn up. They are a smooth running engine when done up.
