    We have beat the small block Chevys into the dirt and know they were in some Studebakers. Ever seen this version of their engine ? This one was buried under a pile of sheets over in garage # 1 and I forgot I had it. Studebaker engine 001.JPG Studebaker engine 002.JPG

    That wouldn't be one of the Packard engines, would it?

    Just looks kinda' like a Nail Head Buick but it ain't. Somewhere around 300 cid. Modified AMC brackets for the alternator and Saginaw steering pump, aftermarket distributor. Remember those weird nosed Packards made from the Studebaker Hawk bodys ? What made you think of that Dan ? Pretty sure these morphed with a few changes into that last generation of AMC engines. At least it isn't a Kelvinator.

    Just a WAG - my family had a '63 Studebaker Commander that had a 289 Packard Engine in it - which is why I phrased my reply as a question... great driving car with a lot of features for it's time. It's downfall was you couldn't get parts for the brakes.
