Really, I never knew that! It doesn't work in this case because the photo gets all grainy, but damn neat trick.

I know this is not right but the one towards the back of the picture looks like it has 2 water necks like the flat head ford used too. Id take a better stab at it but I can't really see the picture that well (that's my excuse anyway)

I thought it might be an early Hemi conversion for flat head ford by a company that had indian in its name dont think it had any thing to do with indian motercycles ,even though imc did have conversions for aircraft use

Them be Allison V 1710's twelve Cylinder Aircraft Engines! A hole crap load of them! Did ja ever see that many in a shop before?
Depending on which configuration, carbureted, turboed , supercharged, or double supercharged they produced between 600 to 2800 hp. First built in 1931. Produced through WWll.

Want to make them turn the other way? Reverse the cam, install a different starter, and add a idler for the supercharger. Start her up.

Carolinacustoms your up!

You're on the right track, close but no cigar. There are actually some earlier than the one I am thinking of but I don't think they were "production" cars, mostly one off inventor stuff.

There were front wheel drive vehicles in the early 1900's. Haynes trucks were one of them. Miller designed and ran front wheeled racers in the late 20's early 30's at Indy. I'll have to think about it for a while.
