Two completely different engines and manufaturers.
But to look at the pictures, one can see why this question could indeed be asked...
Some good Chrysler flathead six info is at:

[:0] That MoPar Flathead Six site would be more interesting if someone would check it for errors, Jeff. Sheesh. [:0]

I glanced at it a couple minutes and noted that they said 1953-1954 Plymouths had 117 CID, but it's really 217. OK, probably a typo.

Then they said the last flathead six in a Plymouth was 1957, but it was really 1959! Hmmm...

I hope we don't have such discrepancies [8] on our Studebaker websites! BP

Ditto everything said above plus the fact that the Studebaker 6 is a better engine! (Yeah I know, what else would you expect to be said!!??) But having owned both, I still say the Studebaker is better, particularly the post 1955 models.
