Next time do yourself a favor and do a little research..... It just might save you from showing a distinct lack of knowledge on whatever subject is being discussed.
You mean like Henry establishing the first assembly line? He PERFECTED the assembly line, he didn't invent/establish it!

Well if you want to be technically correct no he didn't invent it, ..... however I stated that Henry Ford "established" the assembly line and this was correct as far as the automotive industry is concerned, and that was the subject being discussed. There were crude assembly lines that had been implemented in other industries earlier (that's where he got the idea) but when it comes right down to it, Henry Ford is the one credited with "introducing and establishing" the first successful assembly line to the automotive industry........ At least according to all the history books.

Hemi's

Reference all the Hemi stuff, the Chrysler folks bolted two specially built Hemis together to use in test model XP-47 late in WW2.They were inverted, end to end. Legend has it there are 3 remaining in museums. Never went into production, Jets were on the way in.

Curtiss-Wright build a water cooled V8 hemi engine for WWI (1917) that was used in many airplanes back then... like the infamous Jenny of WWI. The engine was the Curtiss-Wright OX-5.

Yes and Henry got the idea after touring assembly line factories in Germany. Check it out.

Many of the things Henry did, he got the ideas from somebody else and improved upon them and made them successful.

We used to keep the block, heads, crank, and oil pumps (56) and a few cams and a couple plain valve covers that we had chrome plated.. The rest went to the junk yard. We used to be able to get a whole car for $50 tops. We'd get a couple and rip them apart on a week end. Sometimes we got $10 for the remains. 300's were better. It was rumored they had high nickle blocks. Never saw any difference. Imperials sometimes had the dimples as did the truck and marine blocks. We just went shopping and took every thing we could find. If it had 57 or 58 in the serial number it was a 392.
don't you just hate us old guys. haha
Hey we muscle car guys did similar things. None of us ever thought that "it" would end. When we woke up in 78 we had the shock of our lives, didn't we?
Cars we traded off for just a few bucks.. or parts we just threw away..... ah... ebay.

I probably owned the most rare factory built mopar ever... and traded it for a Catalina 400.
