Be sure your '55 V-8
has all these advances
When it comes to ordering a V-8, it stands to
reason you want a proven V-8. And both Ford's
162-h.p. and 182-h.p. Y-block V-8's are just that
. . . backed by Ford's 23-year experience building more V-8's
than all other makers combined.
Unlike other V-8's on the road, Ford brings you Trigger
Torque power . . . power that can obey four times faster than
you can wink! And only Ford has the years-ahead look of the
Thunderbird . . . the smoother riding of Angle-Poised Ride
. . . the gas-savings of the Automatic Power Pilot. Why not
come in for your Test Drive today?
Extra-deep, Y-shaped block
Fotd alone in its field brings you the advantages
at deep- block construction. By providing a more
rigid support for the crankshaft, this construc
tion helps the engine run smoother, last longer.
Short-stroke, low-friction design
With Ford's modern, short-stroke design,
pistons travel a shorter distance for a given
amount of car travel. This results in less fric
? tion, more power, longer engine life.
in the low-price field
In all Ford engines, the major accent is on
"torque" ? the twisting force that actually
turns the rear wheels of your car. Ths greater '
the torque, the faster your engine responds to
your commands. And the torque in Ford V-8
engines is the highest in its field.
Automatic Power Pilot
Exclusive to Ford engines, this completely inte
grated carburetion-ignition-combustion system
works automatically to assure that the right
gas mixture is ignited at the right instant and
burned completely, to give you the most "Go"
from every drop of gasoline.
Turbo-Wedge Combustion Chambers
^ The wedge shape of Ford combustion chambers
helps develop a virtual "tornado" of gases,
causing faster, more complete combustion and
more efficient use of gas.
Full-Flow Oil Filter
Unlike the filters used in other low-priced cars,
Ford's oil filter cleans all of the oil in your
engine all of the time! So you get greater protec
tion of vital engine parts.
18mm. Spark Plugs
? These totally new plugs, exclusive with Ford
in the low-price field, have an extra-wide gap
between plug core and shell, which makes Ihem
? resistant to formation of deposits up to tliree
I times longer than conventional plugs.
