Default '64 F100 v8 engine size(s)

Was the 292 the base V8, or had Ford moved on to the Windsor engines?

thanks, Gene

In 64 I think the 292 was the only V8 available in the F100,I dont think the windsor motors made it to the trucks untill somewhere around 68 and 65 was the first year for the FE to be in the trucks.

Two L6 223 and 262. The only 8 was the 292.

In 65 they changed. Two L6 240 and 300 and the FE352.

I had to think about this as I looked at a 64 F100 a few months back and I remember the 352 casting on the block. The seller said it was a 390 which was slightly incorrect!

The 352 CID V8 was an available option for the F100 and larger series trucks in 1964.
My brother in law purchased a new F250 camper special in mid 1964, the dealer offered him the 352 engine as an option, however, they did not have one so they would have to order the truck... They had the truck with a 292 so my brother took it to save $35.00.
He was sorry the minute he put his new 11' camper on the truck.
I had a F-350 with the 292 V8 that gave me a lot of trouble. I went to Ford with the problem, they suggest converting the truck to an FE engine. Ford supplied all of the conversion mounts/bellhousing, fly wheel etc.
I picked up a complete engine out of a low mileage wrecked truck and bolted the thing right up to the T-98 trans. Of course I had to have an exhaust built for the truck.
We used the truck in our business for ten more years with no problems.

Never seen a 352 in a 64 that was a factory installation,seen a 61-4 in a local junkyard that had a FE but was very obvious it had been adapted.

I have only one personal experience, and no written info that the FE style of engine was available in the 64 F series trucks, however, as I stated previously, Ford had the bell housing to fit the T-98 4 spd trans and they had the front motor mount plate.
It is interesting to note that the 64 F-100/350 series was the last truck to use the solid "I" beam front axle which utilized the front engine mount.
However, there is an exception to this application; The '65-66 F-250/350 4x4 trucks used the '63-64 style of cab w/intragated running board steps. The cab is actually the F-350 style with the battery box under the right floor board. The inner fenders are also the '63-64 style w/ a '65-66 core support and grille.
The '65-66 FE engine is mated to the NP T-18 4 spd utilizing the early style front motor mount.
I am currently restoring a '66 F-250 4 x4 that had the original 352, I have replaced it with a '68 390.
I can not speak about the '65-66 F-100 4x4's because I have never paid any attention to them.
