1955 Ford Engines

Recommended Posts

What V-8 engine options did Ford have in 1955 cars? Were they all Y block? Is there an easy way to distinguish one from another? Thanks!

In 1955 Ford cars had 2 engine options. A 223 ci 6 cylinder and 272 ci "Y' block V8. The Thunderbird was fitted with the 292 ci Y block V8. In 1956 the the 292 was added to the passenger car options and the 312 ci Y block V8 option was added to the Thunderbird.

At the Mercury division, the first OHV V8 in 1954 was 256 ci. In 1955 the 292 ci, in 1956 the 312 ci, and in 1957 the Lincoln 368 ci was added as an option.

Over at Lincoln, the first OHV V8 in 1954 was 317 ci. In 1955 341 ci, and in 1956 368 ci.
