I THINK (sometimes) that it just might be a couple of SOHC Frods - er Dorfs? Drofs? Whatever - (that company with the blew oval logo)

They look a lot like the ones used in the early-mid 60's with intake and exhaust "reversed" with the "bag'o'snakes" exhaust in the middle and individual side-draft carbs on the outboard sides of the heads. Distributors drive off the front of the cam.

Similar concept to what was used in F1, Indy and in the GT-40 Lemans racer

Here's a good one!
Thirty cylinders, five banks, five carburetors, five distributors, 1255 cubic inches. This is what happens when Detroit goes to war. Chrysler built the A57 as a way to satisfy a World War II tank-engine contract in a hurry, using as many off-the-shelf components as possible. It consisted of five 251-cube passenger-car inline-sixes arranged radially around a central output shaft. The resulting 425-hp pile of hairy freedom powered M3A4 Lee and M4A4 Sherman tanks.
How the heck do you tune something like this? How would you like to be the first GI to open e engine hatch in the field and find this!

That is friggin wild BB, I love that stuff. I don't know how well it worked but damn what an amazing piece of ingenuity! I love seeing the heads sitting there, frigging heads just like found on Rosy the Riveters car she drove to the plant. I really dig that stuff, very interesting.

Well, its not very exotic, but a bit of nostalgia for me. My father and I circa 1970 with my first engine build, '65 Olds 425 in my first T-bucket (car ended up as shown in my avitar)

Here's an unusual engine that I saw run at our local dyno the other day....



This is a Jimmy 302 from an old GMC truck. It has a Rotrex supercharger and a custom EFI intake. (the air cleaners are not functional - I guess they're there just to confuse people...inside them is a 180 degree elbow that connects the throttle bodies to the duct from the blower, which wraps around the front of the valve cover). This winter I'll be installing this beast in a '37 Chevy coupe street rod....it's going to be a tight squeeze.



It has a neat sound....reminds me of an old v6 2-stroke Detroit. Unfortunately, I couldn't stick around to see them get the fuel and timing worked out. They did eventually get some acceptable numbers out of it. It was something like 360 HP and 430 Ft/lbs, and they never pushed it past 5000 rpm.

Joe G.

Thanks Joe G.....thats one helluva a different build, even liked the music. Heres a couple of pics of my different kind of build for my REPLICA '32 Victoria. "BUILT" 507" Cadillac, 8.7 compression for street gas, dyno'd 466 hp @ 5000 and 535 lbs.ft. @ 4300. Should be sweet in a 2800 lb. hot rod.
