there never was a V-8 until way after ya'll,s shorty rolled off the line
Ford put them into production in 1932.
The V8 engine configuration became popular in France from 1904 onward, and was used in a number of aircraft engines introduced by Renault
, and Buchet among others. Some of these engines found their way into automobiles in small quantities. In 1905, Darracq built a special car to beat the world speed record. They came up with two racing car engines built on a common crankcase and camshaft. The result was monstrous engine with a displacement of 1,551 cu in (25,416 cc), good for 200 bhp
Rolls-Royce built a 3,535 cc (216 cu in) V8 car from 1905 to 1906.
One of the first production automobile V8s was built by Cadillac. In 1914 they sold 13,000 of the 5.4 litre (330 cu in) L-head engines in its first year of production
I rebuilt a Cole engine, I don't remember what year it was but, they started using them in 1915 and went out of business in 1925.
