    I owned a 1969 Tempest with the overhead cam (OHC) engine. It served me very well. I sold it to my boss (a risky thing to do) and he got many years of commuting to work with it.

        Danarchy - Thanks for the link on the IKA. That was an interesting read. It seems to me that the Tornado six was also used in an open wheel series but I can't remember the specifics.It's been too many years.

          OK - NO web searches now! Just from your brain cell(s) - Who had the Typhoon Six??? Since we're talking storm-oriented titles here.[)] Even better - what year was it introduced and how many years did that name get used???[:0]

                Rambler chose the name Typhoon 6 for the totally new OHV 6 they intro'd in 1964. In fact, they had a special edition 2-dr hardtop to commemorate this debut. You could get a black over yellow, 64 Classic 2-dr hardtop with that engine and the name Typhoon on the rear quarters. That engine was 199cu.in. and then quickly grew to 232 and eventually 258.
                While AMC withered away, that basic 6 cylinder engine survived to the next millenium under the hood of Jeeps!

                So - what was the Skybolt 6???[:I]

                  Studebakers new for '61 Powerful OHV version of the venerable Champ six.

                  Too bad they didnt do the same for the big Commander six.!

                  Too bad they didnt start earlier and do a better job on the OHV heads.

                    Oops, Bob:

                    The Typhoon six was 232 cubic inches when introduced. It was later downsized to 199 and upsized to 258. But it came out as 232 in that 1964 Rambler Classic Typhoon Hardtop. (But will there ever be a model name longer than 1955 Packard Clipper Custom Constellation Hardtop?)

                    Yep, as to the Typhoon Six's survival into the next millenium. My daughter [:I] bought a new Jeep Wrangler Sport last year after college graduation, and therein is the current incarnation of the Typhoon! But, of course, it doesn't have cubic inches anymore; it has liters. [xx(] BP

                    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                    Ayn Rand:
                    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                      BP says: "The Typhoon six was 232 cubic inches when introduced."

                      Aw Bob - you got auto history ALL askew![xx(] The 232 debuted in 1951.[}] Then AMC built it under liesense.[}]
                      Same thing happened with the 289 that Studebaker invented. Ford snapped it up later on![:0]
