Re: Hemi 6



Thanks Ray. I can't find the exact source right away, but "Mitsubishi Motors destroyed all the old records and parts stocks when they purchased Chrysler of Australia in 1980" is close. In assume by "stocks and parts" the article includes engine tooling.  http://www.hotrod.com/cars/featured/1972-chrysler-hemi-charger-rt/

I agree that Hemi pushrod engines would have been out of Mitsubishi's comfort zone back then. Mitsubishi destroyed the stuff not out of malice but short-sighted economic calculations. 

I do recall reading that at some time after 1979 /1980 there was a group of Mopar enthusiasts who looked into making the Hemi 6 again, but gave up when they learned the Hemi 6 tooling / casting had been destroyed by Mitsubishi.

By the way, http://www.valiant.org/valiant/hemi-six.html has some interesting Hemi 6 information.

Thanks,
Gary H.
