Any unusual engines in Jeeps
Does anybody out there have (or have seen) any really unusual powerplants in rigs? I mean like a Buick nailhead or maybe a slant six. I read a magazine article over the weekend that had a flathead ford V8 in a CJ2A and it got me thinking. I have a Studebaker 259 that would be so cool to have in a Jeep. Not very practical, mind you, but very cool. First, I have no idea if it would even fit. Also, I would probably have to have all adapters hand made. And a stude V8 is pretty heavy compared to a Chevy small block. Besides, I'll probably never actually do it. But dreaming is free.
