  • Another odd-ball engine/car combo

    Yikes! 55 Cadillac with a Studebaker 6! Actually looks like an AMC 258; but a 6 in that tank?!?

      I know, that's why I said I thought it's an AMC 258. If it's not it might be a Ford, but definitely not a Stude.

        Did they ever put 6-es in Cadillacs of that era? That car's acceleration must be...glacial to say the least.

          The valve cover does look like an AMC six.
