Classic Ford - - TOP TWENTY -

Although Cosworth never built com­plete cars for Ford, they pro­duced tens of thou­sands of en­gines at fac­to­ries in Welling­bor­ough, Northamp­ton­shire. These were newly-erected plants, for be­fore the 1980s Cosworth had never been a se­ries pro­duc­tion man­u­fac­turer. Orig­i­nally they pro­duced tur­bocharged 16-valveYB en­gines for Sier­ras and Es­cort RS Cos­worths, then also added the ca­pac­ity to build BOA 24-valve en­gines for the Scorpio of the 1990s, and later the last big batch of Cologne V6 pushrod units.
