Wikipedia describes this engine as the last in a line of Ford Y Block engines built between 1952 and 1963. Early engines seem to have been designed to use in both Ford and Lincoln heavy trucks with engine capacity and horsepower increasing steadily through 1955 – 57 when the engine appears to have been devoted exclusively to Lincoln and Mercury cars.
Topping out with the 368 cu in (6 litre), the engine produced up to 300 horsepower with a maximum torque of over 400 ft lbs.

Many thanks to Brian C for donning his chef’s apron again as king of the BBQ. Thanks to Herman for making sure that the actual BBQ got to Eamon’s for the event and finally thanks to the 50+ members and their guests who participated.
This year we had the added treat of being able to see, first hand, the work which Ray Bouillet and members of the Eamon’s Historical Society have undertaken thus far in restoration of the Garage.
The weather was just about right. Not too hot. Not too windy. The social time was good. There was plenty of food, courtesy of the salad’s and treats which members brought along to share.
If you couldn’t be with us this year, then make sure to attend in 2019.
Here’s a few images of the classics on display.
This 1930’s Cadillac was being used as a daily driver to get around in La Jolla. Original exterior condition right down to the slight patina on the paint.
This 1937 Zephyr is a V12 and an example of early monocoque construction.
A 1932 Morgan Cyclecar sporting the same JAP engine as one would find in the likes of Brough Superior SS100 motorcycles of the era.
And then there were the Rat Rods. Rat Rods are a California creation and an art-form in themselves. Interesting and ugly at the same time. Powerful and unforgiving in their performance. Check out the detailed craftsmanship on the 1929 Dodge “Copper Rat”
