Default Baby Hemi

I'm finally first at something. This is a Baby Hemi with 270 ci displacement. It came out of a 1955 gravel truck that eventually got turned into a grain truck. For about twenty years, I hauled gravel alongside the guy who bought this truck new. He had earned the name 'Cannonball' for the way he drove that poor old Dodge truck.
I am putting it in a 1934 Plymouth five window coupe. The truck bellhousing is still on there and an A833 NP four speed is out the back.

Thumbs up

I had one of these that someone had stuck in a New Yorker. Traded it off for 5 running Chevys. Wish I still had it. Be a very cool rat motor!

I have a 270 in a truck body, cool engine. I had a 241 in a '39 IHC back in school in the '60's, loved the engine, hated the transmission! ( Powerflite 2-spd, all I could find.)

Yes, I'll bet in the past, it was harder to bolt up the transmission of your choice to a Hemi. Now-a-days there seems to be a few more adapters so popular transmissions can be hooked up. I made my own adapter, though, to mount an A833 New Process to the motor.

My 54 Dodge 241 had a bizarro 2 speed stick with overdrive and a fluid clutch. Final gear you had to back off the throttle to idle then it shifted, not good for drag racing.
