A local paper for the old car enthusiast "Old Auto's" here in Southern Ontario recently featured a story on 55 Canadian Studebakers.
They called the new 259 V/8 a Pace-Setter & the improved 6 cyl. a "Victory Six".I know the V/8's were Passmaster & Bearcat's depending on carburation but wasn't Victory 6 a Chrysler engine name ?
Does anyone know the correct name given to a 55 six cyl.
My Packard Hawk also had a decal on the rocker cover,but I have forgotten what it said.I thougt it would be a test of knowledge to see how many we can remember

The 6 cylinder was the Victory 6.
The V8's were Pace-setter 224 ci, Bearcat 259 ci, Wildcat 259 ci, and The Passmaster 259 ci. All in 55.

Dodge called the whole car, not just the engine, a Victory Six in 1928. My Grandfather owned one. Below is a picture of it.
