1253 cubes

Probably need to box the frame to run a 30 cylinder, 1253 c.i.d. Chrysler engine in a street rod. Wonder what the combined city/highway gas mileage would be.

Aha! So you have problems with kiwi sites, eh, my northern neighbor? Never fear, Google found even more details about the engine.

Sorry about that, Poncho. The NZ site had a short summary about it, but Allpar has full details. Scroll down a little over half-way for a photo and description.

Chrysler also built an V style engine for an experimental version of the P47 near the end of world war II. I believe the engine is currently in the Air & Space Museum.

I don't know what caused that "Forbidden" notice that you reported. Try this one, please: Shopswarf

The NZ site appears to be an exact mirror of the above. Maybe your ISP objects?
