1932 FORD Model 18, V-8

FORD — MODEL 18 — EIGHT: Once again Henry Ford made automotive history when, on March 31. 1932 he announced the Ford V-8. This type of engine wasn't a novelty by that time but when offered at traditional Ford low prices this new engine was a true milestone. Henry Ford had this 221 cubic inch displacement engine developed in traditional Ford style — extreme secrecy — a small work force operating under relative primitive conditions — under Henry Ford's close personal supervision.
