Welcome to the forum Pavel,

The bottom of your engine appears to be a standard Model A.

Someone has installed a different cylinder head.

Can you post a photo of the other side of the engine?

Derek - do you have plans for that head?

I have a B engine to put it on, but I haven't decided on a car to put it in yet. Either a 1-man sprint car or T roadster on an A chassis.

Pavel,


That is a VERY nice cylinder head!

Thank you. I find out what the engine is and what the price is for me.
I can send more photos via email.

Well, it's a '29 Tudor, so that makes sense. Interesting accessory wheels too. Must have a gas tank under the frame, likely at the rear? (I ask this as there's no fuel line coming off the normal gas tank sediment bowl.
On the firewall, just above the bolted flange, you should find a date stamped in it, like 3-18-29, which gives you the date of the gas tank assembly, usually corresponding closely to the date of the body build.
Interesting semaphore turn signals.

January of '29 A engine. :-)
Pavel, is that a "Ford US" stamp below the engine number?
Perhaps the fuel line is missing as the carb is off. Oops! The second to the last photo shows the fuel line in place!
Nice exhaust heater missing the cover.
What does the valve cover say?
Neat car Pavel!

She was made to go to TROG.

I do not have the designation date yet. I did not have the time to find out. Yes under the engine number is Ford USA and the valve cover is RECORD. I do not understand what TROG is like?
Thank you for your help. :-)

Don't feel bad Pavel, I haven't figured out TROG yet either, but it must have something to do with going very fast. You have a Model A block with an accessory (aftermarket) "go fast" head on it, and probably some custom carburetor, and likely, with all that stuff on top of the block, a counterbalanced crank (perhaps from a late Ford Model B engine, or an aftermarket one).
In this part of the world, all VERY desirable stuff!
Also, you have some interesting aftermarket wheels on the car.

The only thing I know is that this car served the Ford Dealer for Europe. And had a special case for replacement parts.
