Even before I was interested in old cars - I was nuts about old airplanes. At some point in 1965, I found myself marking time I Saigon for a week. Saigon airport was a place of wonder that was open to explore, and I spent a couple of days doing so.
I still have a strong mental image of brazenly sliding open one hangar's doors and being confronted with the sight of hundreds of old aircraft engines all jumbled up!
Closer to the subject at hand, I tried to find SOME interest in the old, OLD Studebaker transmissions that resided in a now cleared wrecking yard in Fresno. No one cared - they're long gone now.[V]

What interesting is further down the page there is a listing for a....a.....56-64 289. Considering the technical differences through the years on these things, it's highly suggested to "kick the tires" prior to purchasing [:o)].
