Over the course of performance car history, and specifically muscle car history, big block engines are particularly beloved, and for good reason. Not only are they the essence of what a muscle car is, but before modern technology and stroker engines, they were also the best way to make a lot of horsepower. Detroit manufacturers each had versions of the big block engine, and Ford was no exception. Actually, Ford was somewhat unique in that it had two very different big block engine designs during the muscle car era.

The FE engine was a design pioneered in the late 1950s, primarily as a more powerful replacement for the dated Y block design because cars were becoming bigger and heavier, and therefore, needed more power to move. What began as torquey engines meant to move heavyweight sedans morphed into screaming high performance mills that won Le Mans and drag racing championships through the 1960s. By the late 1960s, the design was dated, so Ford replaced the FE design with the 385 series, also known as the Lima design, which was more similar to the canted-value Cleveland design being pioneered at the same time. It didn't share the 1960s pedigree of racing success, but the new design was better in almost every way; it exists via Ford motorsports   offerings to this day.

Ford expert and historian George Reid covers both engines completely. Interchange and availability for all engine components are covered, including cranks, rods, pistons, camshafts, engine blocks, intake and exhaust manifolds, carburettors, distributors and more.
