Another hint. It was developed in 1918 by a well known racing name.

Ok, I'm confused, 35window gave the answer didn't he?
And the real mind blower? It was 3,393 CID!

Sure is. V-16 three valve per cylinder proto-type . I snapped this pic at the Auburn, Cord, Dusenburg Museum in Auburn Indiana. Great museum!
Go for it.

I believe 63' was the last year for that engine.
Actually, I believe it was available through '66 but in the gen 2 models they called it a Corsa instead of a Spider. By the way, I did choose my words carefully and specifically said first V8. I still have a 63 4 speed vair conv in a shed but the forum rules won't let me say what I would like to do with it.

Well Brian said he knew but didn't say, John L knew but didn't say and 35Window said Dusenburg so I guess he's got it.

That was just an insinuation that I need to put it on Craig's list or in the classified adds. I probably will not do anything with it. I am more interested in customs or street rods.

Ok, since 35window did not come back, I will jump in. Why does the 36 ford 3 window coupe have a lot of structural wood and a 5 window coupe does not?

I'm sorry. I thought you guys had agreed to move on if the person was off line after a period of time. My apologies.

Yeah I know it's hard when you are on a roll but we had figured 24 hours for people to catch up or when the question is so hard that no one responds.

Sounds good. Had I read the other 3357 posts I probably would have read that somewhere

LOL, we actually just decided on it a few pages ago because the thread went dead for so long and it's so darn much fun. We figured 24 hours was long enough to wait and if no one was answer or asking a question to jump in and ask one. It's a shame to let the thread die, it's one of the best on the board.

So at that rate, tomorrow at 1:35 PM (Post #3345) if he hasn't came back (which I hope he does and bet he does) we can post a question.
