Dismantling A Windsor V8 For Use In A 1960 Ford Falcon: Video

Over the years, we’d rather gotten used to YouTube car reviewer Mr. Regular Cars‘ characteristic style: heavy on humor, light on substance. Not, of course, that there’s anything wrong with that; his following of devoted cultists and casual millennial car enthusiasts speaks for itself, and he seemingly speaks to them.

But then, over the summer, Regular Cars raised money from his viewership to buy and restore a classic 1960 Ford Falcon, and so far, the videos to come out of the resulting “Project: Vagabond Falcon” have been much more substantial and informative than we could have guessed.

You can watch the latest of these videos above, wherein Mr. Regular Cars and friends disassemble a 302 cubic-inch Windsor V8 bound for use in the Ford Falcon. Especially if you’ve never had the occasion to tear down an engine yourself, it’s well worth a watch.

(Note that the so-called “Windsor” V8 didn’t come along until 1962; before that time, a smaller-displacement “Y-block” V8 was offered, but this particular 1960 Ford Falcon had been powered by an inline-6.)
