That's interesting. When I was researching the Riley Overhead Vale conversion for the Salt Flat Phaeton I found a bunch of tech showing how to put a small block Chevy head on a Model A block. Now you gone and done it and added a Lenco.

How about a 4banger, twin turbo, dual carb or injected Model A Pro Street just for giggles   To be on the wild side put it in a pickup or woodie

Ha, I've wanted to do a slant 4 Hemi for a while now, simply by cutting a Hemi in half. This is great looking forward to seeing where you us it.

Slant 6 hemi would be really cool, more pipes! We never see a "normal" slant 6 used in rods or customs. Was it the XR-6 custom that had a Jag 6? That was a clever idea.

The XR-6 had a Chrysler slant six in it. And not just any slant six. it was one of the prototype all aluminum versions. I have two models of the car and a pile of research material on it. I plan to build it this year some time. I was surprised to read the engine was all aluminum. I remember when Tex Smith built the car. It was featured in Hot Rod Magazine, every month they had an Update on it. The car started by drawing out chalk lines on the garage floor for the frame. I was a kid then and was very impressed by the whole process.
