Listen to This Ford Festiva Running a 1,340cc V-Twin Harley Davidson Engine!

As one of the lower points in Ford Motor Corp.’s history, the first generation of the Mazda-designed Festiva hatchback built from 1986 to 1993 (also sold as the Mazda 121 and Kia Pride) is not the kind of car that you would expect to excite a petrol head at a car meet.

Unless, of course, there’s something odd lurking behind its plain Jane-looking snout, as was the case of this modified Festiva that was filmed by Carscoop reader Martin B. a few years back.

Martin tells us: “This is a video I took 4 years ago at a local car and bike show – a really cool Ford Festiva with a 1340 Harley Davidson engine in it.”

Turn up the volume of your speakers and head below the jump to watch the video.

Kudos to Martin for the video!
