History of the 302 Motor

by April Foulks (Notes) on Friday, August 24, 2012 at 6:52pm

My brother called me a few days ago and we were talking about the  history of the 302 motor & a dispute/discussion between him and a friend on how it went from being a Chevrolet invention to having BOTH the Ford & Chevrolet logos.Since we neither one were sure of the details or what the history actually is, we decided to do some research & this is what we found.

These links tell the story in timeline and dialog form & also include motor sizes and dates.

The last link I threw in because it sounded interesting & for those who, after reading all this, might be wondering if it would be possible to re-create this motor. Enjoy 🙂
