The third and final design of the legendary Ford flathead, the 1949-53 model featured a bolt-on bellhousing and a relocated distributor. Modern insert style bearings were used on both the mains and the rods. Often known as the "8BA", the final flathead design was eventually replaced by the new generation of overhead valve powerplants. The dream of own a flattie can still become a reality with our huge selection of parts and accessories. Our award winning tech staff can help you build the old school engine you've always dreamed of!
