CarsDirect indicates Ford used this engine in many of its most popular vehicles beginning in 1968 and ending in 2001. The 302 cubic-inch displacement is 4.9 liters, but Ford refers to it as a 5.0-liter engine in vehicles from production after the metric system took over the naming of vehicles. The 5.0 designation, in part, is to differentiate it from Ford's 300-inch inline six that the manufacturer calls a 4.9.
Classic Ford vehicles using this engine include the 1968 Shelby GT and Lincoln luxury Continental. Although no longer available in new Ford vehicles, replacement crate 302 engines are available through Ford's racing division. In addition, due to their popularity and many years of production, used and rebuilt 302 engines are available through many wrecking yards and engine rebuilders.

Ford's phaseout of the popular Windsor series of motors, including the 302, began in 1996 with the introduction of the 4.6 liter modular V8.Learn more about Car Makes & Models
