That cropped photo of the front corner is wild! Absolutely wild styling!

It is unique, isn't it. Sort of looks like a car within a car.

I would have never guessed a GM product for that emblem. It looked Mercury or Chryslerish to me.

Ok, I'm ready where's that next question?

I was also thinking Mercury... or maybe Olds. I just wasn't sure.

Sure you can pass the floor. But I can't take it because I am on my way out the door for a few days. I have to run down to Mundelein, IL to pick up one of our next projects:


The floor is up for grabs.....

Hi
In 2001, Chrysler sued General Motors claiming the grill on one of their vehicles copied the design on its' Jeep brand.
What GM vehicle was it?

What domestic auto drivetrain component do these cars share and the name of car it comes from? And we are not talking the whole company like GM or Ford, we are talking the cars name because it is pretty specific.

Brian

1976 Ferrari 400


1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud.

Originally the old Hydramatic transmission that Rolls used and tried to improve was used. Their "improvements" at first didn't work as the trannys were pretty crude and that's the way they worked best. The transmission was used in the Olds and Caddy (Buick had - drum roll - the Dynaflow). My history on the Rolls Hydramatic - right after HS, I worked at a L-M dealership that sold Rolls. One customer had a problem with one and we went to the local Cad-Olds dealership for parts.

Dave, you mentioned Buick (you know that most my questions concern Buicks ). I didn't know about the dynaflow but what I have learned is that the Buick Nailhead ST400 was used for years in these and many other cars because of it's short bellhousing.

Unlike the other GM engines with the flywheel hanging off the back of the engine.

The nailheads flywheel is inset into the block. In this photo you can see that the clutch surface is pretty much flush with the back of the block.



The transmission therefor has a very short bellhousing.


This makes for the perfect conditions for an adapter to be used to mate this transmission to most any other motor made. I know they were used in the Ferrari and Rolls as I have literally saw that. But I remember them also being used in the Aston Martin AND in seventies Jeep big blocks. Now remember these transmissions hadn't been made for Buick since 1966 the last year of the nailhead! That is the part that blows me away the most they were still making this tranny for a few decades after the nailhead was gone.

It is??? I didn't think I "passed" (lucky 3000th post to this thread)

OK - thinking cap time and at least a two part (or more)

Pre discs, there were two generally recognized braking systems. They were often named __________ and ___________. They are called a couple other names as well and those answers might be accepted (they will be) too

Ford used the one style until____________ but Chrysler went on and used it until _____________ .

If you know the difference and post a brief blurb, points will be added to your score
