The 40's copper brazed blocks might have had a different setup than the 50's cast iron blocks

This is considered to be one of the best examples of a particular builder's style in the late-50's.
Who was it?

Yeah, it pretty well screams Bailon
The car blew me away when it first showed up in a magazine in the mid-80's

I was thinking it was about the right size for that
I understand Frost King used the engines to power their reefers; and Fageol, Crofton, and possibly Homelite stood them on end for use in out-board boat motors

I think I have that Custom Cars issue, that's probably why it rang a little bell in my head.

Well Brian didn't follow up with a question so I'll ask one. I just ran across a very interesting article about Detroit and it's automobile heritage. That prompts me to ask all of you bright automobile aficionado's the following query.
What was Detroit's first V-8 and who used it?

BB

Inquiring minds want to know.

All of those manufactures used v8's Including Antoinette in1902. Cadillac in 1914. Packard didn't produce a V8 until 1955 and Hudson really never built their own V8. They used the Packard V8 also in 1955.

Go back and read the question I asked.
