Ford 5.0/302 Trivia: The Ford Small Block is a series of automobile V8 engines built by the Ford Motor Company beginning in July 1961. The engine was discontinued in new trucks (F-Series) after 1996, and new SUVs (Explorer) after 2001, but remains available for purchase from Ford Racing and Performance Parts as a crate engine. The "Windsor" designation is an enthusiast designation applied for the family of engines sharing a common basic engine block design (Ford itself never named the engine family). The Windsor designation was adopted to distinguish the 351 cu in (5.8 L) version from the Cleveland 335-family engine that had the same displacement, but a significantly different configuration. The designations of 'Windsor' and 'Cleveland' were derived from the locations of manufacture: Windsor, Ontario and Cleveland, Ohio.
The engine was designed as a successor to the Ford Y-block engine. Production began in 1961 for installation in the 1962 model year Ford Fairlane and Mercury Meteor. Originally produced with a displacement of 221 cu in (3.6 L), it eventually increased to a maximum displacement of 351 cu in (5.8 L), but was most commonly sold with a displacement of 302 cu in/ 5.0 L , with engines of that displacement offered from 1968 until 2000. From the mid-1970s through the 1990s, the Ford Small Block engine was also marinized for use in smaller recreational boats.
For the 1991 model year, Ford began phasing in their new 4.6/5.4 L Modular V8 engine, which was to replace the small-block. In 1996, Ford replaced the 5.0 L (302 cu in) pushrod V8 with the Modular 4.6 L in the Mustang, and in 1997 for F-150, then until 2001 in the Explorer SUV, and until 2002 by Ford Australia in their Falcon and Fairlane cars.
