I hope to get my 60 out soon to fix the water pumps so I can start driving it.

About 15 years ago I made a st of 1 piece valve guides for a fellow. He said the valves were made from stock early Ford engines and the onepiece guide was used to reduce oil burning. Can't find the name of this guy For those of you building these engines with split guides I suggest you pistall a thin film of RTV on the guide befor installing. I've done this several times and still do it on the one piece guide instead of the rubber "O" ring. Works like a charm, Simple.

French Ford (and then Simca when Simca bought Ford France in late 1954) used the small V8 until 1961. Only pre-war engines similar to US engines were used by Ford France and Matford (joint venture between Ford France and Mathis from 1936 to 1939), the first engines were Ford tin sides.
Post war engines used on French Ford Vedette and Simca Vedette were slightly different from the US engines.
First generation of Ford Simca Vedette, engine cubes 2.351 cubic cm and develop 80hp.
After 1961, Simca Brazil still used this engine on brazilian models with increased engine displacement and dual carb set up.
I have 2 of these engine, one stock in my 56 sedan and one modified (big bore brazilian pistons, porting, dual carb and dual exhaust) in my 56 coupe and both are running very well.
Will send pictures when I 'll be home.

Darrell, give us a driving report on the T when you can. I'm thinking of building something like that for the 60 I have. Or, I'll get Zach to send me that midget up above and I'll put it in that.

Update! My hot rod motor is finally coming together. Bob Baxter at Baxter Ford is building it for me. He is one of the best builders around and does beautiful work. I'm hoping it will be finished by the end of the year. It's going to have lots of bling and go fast goodies, including a pair of perfectly matched large logo 81's restored by Uncle Max with polished stainless parts. I can hardly wait to see the final results. I can't make up my mind on what to do with the NOS engine yet. It has never been assembled. For now I'm going to build a display table in my shop, and just look at it in its virgin state. I've never seen or heard of another one like it. What would you guys do with it? All opinions welcome.

Very nice. I've never seen one like that with dual carbs. Is that a four speed transmission?

I just re-built this 37' "tin side" last week for display in my shop. I've sold four other 60's over the last few years including a marine conversion. Around three years ago I bought a collection of them and NOS parts from the estate of a midget racer here in the Detroit area. His son said that every vacation they went on (back in the 60's) his dad would stop at every Ford dealership they passed and buy all the 60 parts they had left. I kept this one and my uncle rebuilt one he had for his shop. They always attract attention and start a conversation.
