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.

Great to see so much 60hp interest, I will bookmark this thread in case I need to ask you gents for help. My English 35 Coupe had the 15 stud originally (#738) but it was changed to a factroy recon tin-side before the War. I believe the 15 stud is rare because most of them failed and were exchanged. Ian NZ, do you know of one that is running?

I've only done about 200 miles and not too fast as it's still running in after rebuild, but I am looking for the next gear when I get to 40mph. Looks like there isn't room for an o/d without modifying the trans tunnel. Given that it's a coupe and will usually be carrying just 2 of us, would it pull a stock 4.11 rear end?

Here it is outside the house where it lived from 1935 to 1978.
