    289 cubic Inch V8... roughly a 4.8L motor I believe.

    Mustang 5.0s have a 302 cubic inch V8, they're 4.968 Liters (rounded to 5.0)
    the 96+ Mustang GTs use a 281 cubic inch V8, 4.6 Liters

    93-97 Camaro Z28s use a 350 cubic inch V8, 5.7 Liters (more like 57xx cc)
    98-02 Camaro Z28/SSs use a 346 cubich inch V8, 5.7 Liters (5665cc)

    It's a smallish V8, put more simply. a little smaller than the one that's in my friend's Chevy Luv. ;)

    the Ford 289 was a compact motor made for track racing. IT's a lightweight motor, and more importantly it has incredible potential for revs and installs.

    You can install a Ford 289 almost bolt-in in an older Toyota RWD. The 289 IS a substantially different motor than the Ford 4.6 current motors. The block is the same, but only in terms of rotating assembly. I've seen mildly tuned 289s in 67 2+2's at Limerock doing 9000 rpm without breaking a sweat. I've also seen them in offroading trucks idling along at incredible torque.

    Some clarifications:

    The 1963.5 Mustang intro had an inline 6. 1965 fully introduced the 289 V8 with low 200's hp.

    The high-po 289 was found in 1967 racing, and 1968 production as a K-Code.

    Cobras also came with 289s. It's rare, but more common than some other Cobras. (Typical drop-in was the 302, 351, and it's more common than a 427 SO or the 351 AC/SC)

    -> Steve

    I haven't run through the fact checker yet, but this is just me talking. If you are interested, I suppose I could do a write up.

    BWAHAHAHA I WAS RIGHT

    The '64½ was actually considered a '65 by Ford, but many people now use the terms to differentiate changes made by Ford after mid-August 1964
