Me too. The Dodge was the one I had come up with. That was probably 6 months ago and I believe before you came aboard.

I just found this which explains the different answers.

The modern electric traffic light is an American invention.[6] As early as 1912 in Salt Lake City, Utah, policeman Lester Wire invented the first red-green electric traffic lights. On 5 August 1914, the American Traffic Signal Company installed a traffic signal system on the corner of East 105th Street and Euclid Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio.[

What make and model is this?

It originally came with a small block Chevy, why does it need an adapter now?

55-56 Chevy needs the adapter because the early engines used the front mount and the newer engines use the side mounts. Not sure on the year but its close lol. I'm sure there are some distinguishing details I didn't notice.
