The 1935 - 4 main bearing V8-60 engines were made designed and made in Dearborn U.S.A for the Dangenham English 112 inch imported Ford V8 models, as well as the English Model 61BBE which was a 25cwt Forward control 25cwt truck chassis and some of these engines were exported from Dearborn to France in late in 1935 early 1936 to France for their Matford Ford Model cars.
Apparently most of the 1935 4 main bearing V8-60 engines that were in the cars and trucks were replaced with either the later 1936 three exhaust port V8-60 engine or 21 stud Ford V8 engine, and parts were found hard to obtain, and are different from the later 1936 three exhaust port engines.
Two 1935 cars have been found in England have been found with the four main bearing engines as per photo, plus another two engines, and there are three of these engines here in N.Z.
