  • Engine Trivia

    What was the largest displacement passenger car engine used by Studebaker (bonus - year/years)?

    I believe that I remember the correct answer, but I am open to correction.

    Not sure on what exact years, but early Big Six's used a 354" engine.

      NO (no cigar - needed more characters)

              Something tickles the back of my mind about 388 cu in. Early, possibly an 8? I have a 95%+ expectation that I am incorrect, though.

                For some reason, this thread hasn't shown up in my "What's New?" category/button. I am glad that I did a "search" for it.

                You guys are on the right track.
                I will give two clues.
                1) The engine is a six cylinder.
                2) The engine was made by another company for use/sale by Studebaker.

                  The 383-ci, 98-hp Hercules WXC3 was used in the 1937 - 40 model J30 and J30M trucks.

                      The first year that Stude owned Pierce Arrow, PA had a 6 that displaced 415 cubic inches, but I've never heard that Studebaker used that engine. If they did, I want one of those cars. That was a cool engine.

                        Maybe in one of the bigger S.P.A. trucks??

                            I am truly amazed of the knowledge this forum has in it's members. It is an honor to be apart of such a wise group of folks. I am a babe at heart in these cars when it comes to specs but if it helps I do carry on the name

                            I will sit back and soak in the knowledge of others
