  • The Ford flathead V8 (often called simply the Ford flathead, flathead Ford, or flatty when the context is implicit, such as in hot-rodding) is a V8 engine with a flat cylinder head designed by the Ford Motor Company and built by Ford and various licensees. During the engine's first decade of production, when overhead-valve engines were used by only a small minority of makes, it was usually known simply as the Ford V‑8, and the first car model in which it was installed, the Model 18, was (and still is) often called simply the "Ford V-8", after its new engine. Although the V8 configuration was not new when the Ford V8 was introduced in 1932, the latter was a market first in the respect that it made an 8-cylinder affordable and a V engine affordable to the emerging mass market consumer for the first time. It was the first independently designed and built V8 engine produced by Ford for mass production, and it ranks as one of the company's most important developments. A fascination with ever-more-powerful engines was perhaps the most salient aspect of the American car and truck market for a half century, from 1923 until 1973. The engine was intended to be used for big passenger cars and trucks; it was installed in such (with minor, incremental changes) until 1953, making the engine's 21-year production run for the U.S. consumer market longer than the 19-year run of the Ford Model T engine for that market. The engine was on Ward's list of the 10 best engines of the 20th century. It was a staple of hot rodders in the 1950s, and it remains famous in the classic car hobbies even today, despite the huge variety of other popular V8s that followed. (en)
  • I motori Ford V8 Flathead hanno costituito una famiglia di motori a scoppio prodotti dal 1932 al 1955 dalla Casa automobilistica statunitense Ford, e su licenza, fino al 1961, dalla francese Simca e fino al 1973 per i camion Ford commercializzati in Germania. (it)
  • O Motor Ford flathead V8 foi um motor V8 de válvulas laterais criado pela Ford Motor Company e construído pela Ford e várias montadoras licenciadas pelo mundo, Durante a primeira década de produção do Ford flathead V8, quando os motores de válvulas laterais eram raros, ele geralmente era conhecido simplesmente como motor do Ford V-8 e o primeiro modelo de carro em que ele foi instalado foi no Model 18, o Ford Model 18 muitas vezes é chamado apenas de "Ford V-8". Embora os motores V8 não fossem novos quando a Ford introduziu no Model 18 em 1932, ele foi um dos primeiros a entrar no mercado no que diz respeito a um motor acessível de 8 cilindros em V para os consumidores da classe média. O Ford flathead V8 foi o primeiro motor V8 projetado e construído de forma independente pela Ford para produção em massa, e é considerado um dos desenvolvimentos mais importantes da empresa. O fascínio por motores cada vez mais potentes talvez tenha sido o aspecto mais relevante do mercado americano de automóveis e caminhões durante meio século, de 1923 a 1973. Ele foi planejado para ser equipado de carros de passeio a caminhões; com pequenas alterações dependendo do modelo ou do tipo de veículo até 1953, fazendo com que ele ficasse em produção por 21 anos no mercado americano, ele foi o motor Ford que esteve por mais tempo em linha de produção, ultrapassando o tempo de produção do Ford Model T (19 anos de produção) para o mercado americano. O motor está na lista Ward dos 10 melhores motores do século XX . O Ford flathead V8 ficou muito famoso entre os hot rodders nos anos 50, e permanece famoso entre os entusiastas do automobilismo até hoje, apesar que existe uma variedade de outros motores V8 no mercado hoje em dia.
