Still sporting a Crane cams logo - the website says since S&S (legendary Harley hot rod parts supplier) bought them car cams will not be avaialble for a while.

The "Master catalog" says they can regrind Studebaker V8 cams

Fellow Floridian Smokey Yunick often said "call Crane" in his tech replies in Circle Track Magazine.

I'm trying to figure out what that engine is, strange to my eyes!?

That sure doesn't look like a Studebaker engine in that car. Bud

It's an "R" engine... A R375![:p] (as opposed to an R3)[:o)] LOL

By the distributor placement I would say it is some sort of Chrysler Hemi equivalent with a big blower and injection on top.
