The final 302 engine left Ford's Cleveland Engine Plant in 2000, ending a run of almost 40 years for this impressive V8 engine that found its way into some of Ford's most famous vehicles. The legacy of the 302 still remains and Ford Racing still offers a Ford 302 crate engine, which is easily found on eBay among plentiful auto listings. The story of the legendary Ford 302 engine block starts in 1968 when Carroll Shelby added a high-performance version, or "HyPo" to his GT350. This engine style went on to serve as the beating heart for the Boss 302 Mustang, but it also found its way into more stately vehicles such as the Lincoln Continental. It even made a name for itself on the high seas as a Ford 302 marine engine for boats. A Ford 302 crate engine comes with all-new parts for immediate installation into any compatible vehicle. Whether it is to give an old car a new lease on life or it serves to power a custom vehicle, the 302 has earned its place of prominence within the American automotive industry.Shop the large inventory of motors, parts, accessories, and complete Ford car and truck engines!
