3.0 Vulcan Duece Coupe

For about a year now I’ve had this dream of building a ’32 Ford Coupe replica with fiberglass body and a 3.0 Vulcan V6 mounted to a Tremec T5, turning a Ford 8.8″ rear axle loaded with 4.10 gears and limited slip.  The 3.0 Vulcan V6 was developed by Ford Europe and started being produced in 1986 for the Taurus and later the Aerostar.  It has since been used in the Ranger and ceased production in 2008.  The 3.0 Vulcan was the first mass produced Flex Fuel engine for Ford and is also known for it’s amazingly durable build quality – 300,000 miles before rebuild are not uncommon figures.  The Flex Fuel Vulcan in my Ranger, circa 2000, puts out 150hp and 190tq, which would be plenty of push for a 2,200lb car. Add this to the fact that nothing sounds like a Vulcan V6 and I’m a happy man.  Pushrod cast iron blocks with timing chains for the win!
