5.0 V-8

Does anyone know what year the 5.0 V-8 was introduced?
Is there any known website I can go to?
Thanks!

If you're referring to the old 302, I believe it was 1968. However, you can trace the lineage back to the 221 which came out I think in 1962.

Which 5.0 ?
The "Mustang" 5.0, or the 302, or the Windsor V-8 family? As you will recall, in the late 1970's to early 1980's, the US auto industry was changing the nomenclature of its engine displacement designations, so the 302 cid, introduced alongside and as a replacement to the 289 cid V-8, appeared in the 1968 model year. The series was introduced in 1962, I think, with the 260 cid V-8.
The Olds 403 in the Pontiac Trans Am became the T/A 6.6 (different from the T/A 400, which was a Pontiac engine), the Ford 351 Windsor became the 5.8, the Chevy 305 became the 5.0, etc.
So... what are you considering the "5.0"? The first Mustang with a 302 was 1968, and each generation had a 302 available at some point through 1995 (some years - was not avail.).

P.S. the 302 & 5.0, at 4935 cc displacement, is actually closer to "4.9" liters than "5.0" ...

IIRC, Ford already had a 4.9 six-cylinder truck engine. Besides, 5.0 sounds better. (And they run good too; I had one in my 89 Mustang.)

All true - the six was 300 cid, and a stump puller of an engine, even though only 115 hp(net) in carb, 155 hp in FI trims.
