After a littel google.

1. 1962
2. "Fireball"
3. Buick
4. Jeep
5. Chrysler/Jeep

And if you guys didn't know, this is an odd motor for sure. It was basically the aluminum block 215 with two cylinders cut off! Being it used a V8 crank with two throws lobbed off it was like a v8 with two plug wires pulled! It had a goofball firing order. It literally was an "odd fire" motor with un-even lobs on the distributor cam for the points!

The "Even fire" that came out in mid year 1977 had throws on the crank with two offset journals so the motor would run "even". But that odd fire, was an odd bird!

However, I think we are all screwed up , who has the floor?

Brian

You're thinking of the aluminum V-8 and remember the the statement that it was a small American automobile manufacture. Rover is accross the pond.

4 is Kaiser-Jeep, and
5 is AMC.

Well I said that Brian would probably get it! I must of been posting while Brian posted. It was an oddball engine for sure but with the change that was made in the crankshaft it later became known as the 3800, a long run of engines no doubt. Even-though it was derived from the aluminum V-8 it was made of cast iron. It came out in 61 and really made its big splash in 62 with the Buick Special. In the mid sixties Kaiser Jeep put it in the Jeep. Later when AMC acquired Jeep they discontinued it and used their own in-line six cylinder. In an effort to beat the gas crunch of the seventies GM engineers actually bought a few used ones from the junk yards and installed them in brand new Buick Apollos for testing. It proved to be such a good combination that they went to AMC and tried to strike a deal to have AMC produce them. AMC and GM could not reach a happy agreement on price so GM bought back the rights and all of the tooling. Just think what kind of a public uproar there would have been had the deal been successful; a Buick with an AMC engine, go figure.

After reviewing the last couple pages, I believe the official 'floor' question was Dave57210's.

The world's fastest car in 1949 was the Jaguar XK120.

The 'XK' in the name indicated that the car was equipped with the new Jaguar XK 3.4L DOHC 12v Hemi inline six cylinder engine.

The '120' was the top speed of the car in MPH.

The engine block remained unchanged until 1965 when the cylinder spacing was changed to accommodate larger bores which brought the displacement up to 4.2L. Later on they added emissions controls, and fuel injection, but it was basically the same old block until 1993.

Who had the floor with the question? Are we not playing this game anymore? Photographer had the floor a page or two ago. He didn't come back so we asked some questions to kill the time. We need to get back on track with ONE question.

Ok, Joe, if photographer isnt' going to come back I guess it's your floor and we start again with you.

Joe - that was too easy for most of us old Fordnatics!!

This is a double ended item to do with Fords as well.

A - How can you tell if it's a '49, a '50 or a '51 Ford

B - How can you tell if it's a '52, 53 or a '54 Ford.

These are external (skin deep ) items only - there are some internal/inside differences, but that's for later
