Seems Studebaker was at the forefront of the east-west engine set-up,suppose its front wheel drive too?

That one's got the low compression option.[xx(] Probably just has half-shafts right off either end of da motor.[:0]

You've heard about the Sparrow that Studebaker was tinkering with, right? A small car that was front wheel drive and had the engine turned sideways. Think it was a four cylinder though, and was smaller that the Lark.

From the seller to my email:
"Somebody has taken the motor and set it sideways in there, so its not bolted up, its just sitting in there. Hope this helps It would be rare though if it was.!! LOL"
