It's the same as fuel injected 250's. They weren't around for long but they aren't that rare.

Also the EA and maybe EBI had a 3.3 litre engine available too, although that certainly won't become a desirable thing to own one day..

The 3V is a nice engine though, enjoy 8-)

Have you thought that there are so few around is because thats all that Ford had available at the time and no one wanted to option one, which is why they lasted such a short time in BA/BF models.

If they were that good, people would have been lining up to buy them. But at a $5k option, it would have turned most people off.

On that theory, it makes my Force 6 one of the best cars ever produced, cos they are only 65 of them. But I really know its because of piss poor marketing and a high price that there are so few.

How about a Phase 3 or 4?

NO DON'T THINK IT WILL. GOT TRUCK LOADS IN THE STATES IN MUSTANGS & F'TRUCKS COZ THEY DON'T HAVE 4 VALVE CAST IRON BLOCK ENGINES ONLY US LUCKY PEOPLE DO. BUT HAVING SAID THAT SOME PEOPLE COLLECT P76'S [DO NOT KNOW WHY] KEEP IT LONG ENOUGH AND ALMOST ANYTHING BECOMES COLLECTIBLE. REGARDS TPVM.

4.1 & 3.3 where just tags from when we went metric. The 250 & 200 started life in XY'S & they went metric in XC & became 4.1 & 3.3 same as 302 & 351 Became 4.9 & 5.8. That's enough History.
Regards TPVM.

there's a very small cult following in the 3 v 5.4 with its great engine v8 note and also the strong low downtorque..
