Formula Ford 1600 engine rebuild

We’ve just finished the rebuild on this Formula Ford 1600 engine. It’s going in a 1979 Van Diemen. Due to a crack in the original block this one is using a brand new block from Ford. In addition to the new block we’ve also replaced the pistons. The engine uses the original cylinder head, however, it has been fully rebuilt. All machine work was carried out by Southern Rebore Services. We are looking forward to seeing this engine back on track.

We’ve fully rebuilt this 1293cc Swiftune race engine for our Austin A40 race car. The engine features an all steel bottom end with Omega pistons and Swiftune’s cylinder head and fuelled by a pair of SU HS4 1.5″ carburettors. Next step is to get it run-in and tuned on the rolling road. If you are looking for a historic race car to purchase, this car will be available shortly.
