1950 Chrysler New Yorker Straight 8 started after 27 years
I have owned this car for 38 years (1976). I have occasionally turned the
engine by hand over the years, it still runs fine. It is for sale for
$3500.Good title. Has Fluid Drive transmission. This is the last year for
the 323 cubic inch straight 8. This engine model dates back to the 1930's.
Back in 1976, I once had it up to 80 mph without pushing it too hard. The
engine has a 4-7/8" stroke and a 3-1/4" bore. The generator is still
charging correctly after all those years. Ignition parts are 38 years old,
and fired up after sanding the ignition points to get spark. - - Lance,

triple cockpit mahogany runabout. This was shot about 20 years ago.
Sounds great! I first posted this as an Imperial, but upon further review,
I believe it is actually a Royal, 323 cid. Not sure, at any rate it was
a long time ago that I took this video....

Cutaway Ford Model A motor running on one cylinder.
I met this guy at the 2010 Badger Steam & Gas Show who had a cutaway Ford
Model A engine that would run on one cylinder. He would do short demos as
it will overheat if run too long due to no coolant. Super cool!
Salt Cat Racing - The BIG Engine - Straight 8, 367 C.I.
Recorded on May 25, 2010. Over the winter a bored & stroked 325 was built
(367 C.I.). Also, Frank started boring holes in one of the old heads --
resulting in a 16 port. He named it the "Henry 16 Port" (his 1st name is
Henry). Bigger injectors (90#) were added. The engine was really making
awesome horsepower, until one of the
upper cylinder walls let loose! We hope to get this engine/head
combination back together in time for World of Speed in September and run
it in the XXO Class. For Speed Week we will be running in the XO Class
using the Henry head.
