The only available engine until about March 1966 was the Ford 170ci I-6. It was largely the same engine as used in the Mustang, Falcon, Econoline and other Ford products, but the carburetor was modified for off-road use and the air cleaner improved for the dirtier environment. Typical of Ford, it was an undersquare engine (big bore, short stroke). The 170ci evolved into the 200ci and 250ci engines before the small inline Ford I-6 died in the ’80s.
