You’ve seen these cars on the Museum floor, oohed and ahhed, marveled and even been awestruck. They are amazing, unique, priceless and well—just awesome.
Ever wondered what their engines look like? All that V8 power or steam as some are, kept hidden until now. This weekend starts an event that’s a first for us. Something in all our 80 years we’ve never done before.
Starting tomorrow, Jan. 9, for the first time ever – we’re popping the hoods on over 50 cars in the Museum. The definitive American muscle cars, European ingenuity, early steam power, concept cars – it’s all being opened for Engines Exposed in Henry Ford Museum.
Hours and hours have been spent by our curators, conservators and volunteers to clean, prep and reposition these cars for the ultimate viewing. For the devoted gear head, this rare opportunity is a must-see chronicle of automotive history.
Just a teaser of some of the cars you will see – but seeing these engines in person is the best way to get a glimpse of car heaven.
Don’t miss out; we may never do this again! Have a great weekend!
