The author recalls the recent announcement that the Ford Motor Co. is to develop the Philips Stirling engine for possible use in cars and gives details of the features and method of operation of this type of reciprocating heat engine. Other organizations developing the engine are the Swedish Government- sponsored United Stirling (Sweden) AB and the West German combine man/mwm who already has an engine on trial. Engine emission values are given which show how favorably the Stirling engine compass with the low- emission diesel engine and how it compares with California State requirements for 1975.
