You might have heard me banging on about the 220kW version of the Ford Windsor V8 in the TS50 back around the turn of the century. These were a seriously sweet little V8 and one to collect if you’re that way inclined. But if you’re looking at a 220kW TS50 and it doesn’t have the alloy cylinder heads, don’t assume it’s a ringer. Ford only used the alloy heads as a stop-gap until a locally-modified castiron head was completed. And when it was, the engines switched to that. The later version is just as beaut… just a bit heavier.
