All I see is a giant set of balls.  What are you guys looking at?

In reply to Mr_Asa :

I'll go with Mopar flathead 6.  Note the 3 bolts across the front of the head, the location of the thermostat housing, location of the front spark plug, and the angle of the water outlet in the front. Mopar and Hudson would be the go-to flat 6's, this is a better visual fit.

Looks like the driver might've bought the brand new car that engine came in.

This looks like the same car:



And possibly this guy's father had owned it at some point:

Turner Brakes makes conversion kits to put modern American calipers onto Studebakers, and possibly other American antiquities fo which I have no familiarity. I did a Turner conversion on the pictured Avanti, a piece of which is pictured below.

That might be the one vehicle I'd buy new right now if they made one.

I started making a van-pickup out of a 1972 Econoline once; doors + one side window  + a flat out back.  I learned too late that the bent sheet metal frame isn't made for that kind of stuff.

Paid $200,000 for permits, another $200k for the physical move and you too can keep your Victorian and the high rise apartment builders get what they want.
