Topic: 1952 V8 upgrade

  I would guess that the 226 six cylinder was the standard engine in a 52 F1 and that getting the 239 flathead V8 would have been considered an upgrade. If this is true, does anyone know what the cost to upgrade would be?

  there is a lot of difference,
RADIATOR for one,
finding a 239 ENGINE at a reasonable price, that is running , or rebuilt,
a donor truck will be the ticket,
and a host of other items, fuel lines, gas pedal linkage most likely , EXHAUST PARTS. Manifolds,
I have a 53 MERC 155 cubic inches, 4 inch crankshaft, 8CM engine, that need rebuilding or overhaul,,, I am almost sure,
you can PM me if interested,
my 2 cents 37RAGTOPMAN in MAINE, I GO to HERSHEY in OCT

  In 1952, it would have cost about $20 for the optional V-8.
