Automotive Trivia: Who Completed the Quickest Engine Swap?
In November of 1985, a team of four UK Royal Marines changed the engine of a Ford Escort in 42 seconds. The team practiced for two weeks and the car likely included many modifications to accomplish the task. Regardless, it made for a funny British television show! You can watch them perform the quick engine swap in the video below. If you find yourself in need of some help with your engine, we suggest contacting one of our twelve Cleveland – Akron area locations. While we won’t be able to service it in under 42 seconds, we will make sure to take good care of you and your car!
