RE: [Chrysler300] '56 300 engine on eBay





I bought three Desoto motors from local neighborhood crook when I was ~ 16, (~1959) cheap, ---two had Chrysler firepower valve covers put on them ; my dad ended up burying them in our back yard. Dug a hole next to them 8 years later and pushed them in.

 

One Chrysler industrial 354 out of junkyard sitting next to them, ended up in a 54 Ford coupe though.

 

I also pulled apart a nice running 392, left in pieces in basement. He “got rid of that”  too….this bug bites early , before your brain has grown up.

The appearance of the engine makes me wonder if it was assembled as a display for a museum etc. (Painted carb bodies don’t appeal to me!)

It reminds me of the 55 Desoto Hemi I bought back in the early 60’s to put in a Dodge sedan  I had. The PO said it ran pretty rough and needed a tuneup. It did run rough! 

It had had a piston and connecting rod  removed, because the cylinder wall was broken out in one area. I was always curious what that was all about. It sure looked nice though!

I was gonna put the address in, but got extracted by a call to supper. Here it is for the convenience of others.

I love the Dual Quid part of the address!  

It would be great to get a B engine into a needy B chassis. Probably worth the money. Note the other items shown on the page. A late-model 5.7L hemi engine can be had for $3,225. Go figure.

Thanks to Cousin Gil Cunningham’s help, I was able to re-unite the numbers matching engine to the ’55 C-300 that I first saw in Des Moines about this time 61 years ago.

I’ve found the process of converting long website addresses (URL’s) to tiny ones at www.tinyurl.com <http://www.tinyurl.com> to be secure, fast and easy. Try it. You’ll like it.

ok, finally got smart, found the 300B listing and saw that the info
was passed along.

Mission accomplished!
