As Ford Motor Company celebrated its landmark 50th anniversary In 1953, the company also looked ahead for the future with the futuristic X-100 and X-500 show cars, both demonstrating Fords fast-growing emphasis on bold Dream Car styling and new passenger amenities and safety features for its production models. A brand new V-8 engine with modern overhead valves put the trusty old flathead into the history books in 1954 and by 1956, the new engine had grown into two basic versions displacing 292 and 312 cubic inches respectively.
