    Hahaha – ford falcon 144 cu in mill – these would barely move a FORD FALCON ? – 3.50 X 2.50 bore and stroke — the opposite of a good old willys 4 slug stroker – I honestly hated these motors back in the day – a buddy of mine was a ford falcon aficionado , Econoline van also , we used make endless fun of him , I remember his Falcon breaking down in the middle of winter on a x-country ski trip , eastern sierra – first it broke a u-joint in Reno — carburetor work near Bridgeport , then it overheated near death valley , in winter !! finally radiator blew in Kingsburg , central valley , then his wife divorced him and I got her – sorry , when I saw what engine was in this Aussie jeep , it brought back all these bad memories ..

    In my mind, the 170 cubic inch 6 cylinder was a dependable engine, Falcons and Econoline vans were some of the most innovative vehicles Ford ever made. Having said that, I can understand why that 6 cylinder was chosen for the Jeeps. The Ford Pinto 4 cylinder was a popular conversion for the CJ5’s here in the states.

    In the 1980s I had a ’62 ford FALCON with the 144 ci as my daily driver ( I still have it ) I would run up and down the NY thruway at 70 mph with people and gear . I have nothing but good memories of that motor and all FALCONS .

    Terry, I agree, and the fact that you still have it speaks volumes of truth. The grill on the 62 Falcon was always my favorite.

    i don’t care what you people say about the WHINY little FORD 144 straight 6 — i hate em !! — why ? — they were WHINY –they were all talk NO ACTION !! — the 170 , 200 and 250 versions were even WORSE !! — definitely not a good engine for a WILLYS !! — JEEPS need long stroke engines , not short stroke boulevard cruiser MILLS !!

    Gee Merle, No need to get so upset, just conversation and differing opinions. I for one never was into the “Muscle car” mentality, never understood why some guys would switch out their Willys engines, then install huge cubic inch V8 engines, with all that power, wind up blowing out the rear low end differential gears. Back in the 60’s, I almost bought a 61 wagon with a huge 348 Chevy under the hood, when I mentioned this to the service manager at the local Jeep dealer MIDE Motors, he told me way it was a mistake. I took his advise.

    According to this article, Australia was a leader in developing more, but practical, power out of these engines: http://www.mustangandfords.com/how-to/engine/1811-six-appeal-building-a-200ci-inline-six-engine-for-todays-driving

    Mike, I can appreciate your position on this. However, depending on the environment, there are definitely times that more power is necessary. Pulling a trailer full of camping equipment up a 500ft, rough trail requires more than stock power, a common situation in our neck of the country. Navigating passes of 3000ft and higher on our Pacific Northwest highways requires power, especially when pulling a trailer. Playing on large sand dunes generally requires more than stock power. That’s why, in our area of the country, finding a flat fender with the original engine is difficult; it just wasn’t a practical engine for our region and for how the jeep was used here.
