www.e-motorclassics.com Hemi Engine History
A Chrysler Hemi engine is one of three different internal combustion engine families from the Chrysler Corporation that are Hemi engines; in other words, they utilize a hemispherical combustion chamber. A hemispherical cylinder head allows the valves to be inline rather than side-by-side, which gives a straighter, simpler airflow path, allows large valves, and gives greater efficiency. The hemi design places the sparkplug in the center, giving more even ignition.
The advantages of the hemi cylinder head come at the disadvantage of requiring intake and Exhaust valve stems that point in different directions, requiring much more complicated rocker arm setups in overhead valve engines. These also increase the space taken up by the cylinder head; Hemi engines are not space-efficient.
The hemispherical head designed engines were the first engines in 1964 to officially use the "Hemi" name, a word Chrysler trademarked. All Chrysler Hemi engines of the 1960s displaced 426 in³ (7.0 L). Although just 11,000 Hemi engines were produced for consumer sale, the engine became legendary, with "Hemi" becoming one of the most familiar automobile-related words in the United States. The 426 Hemi was nicknamed the "elephant engine" at the time, a reference to its far-from-compact dimensions and extraordinary power.

BIG Ray Barton Crossram Hemi. This camera sucks ass because the car was so
much louder than in this video. He left early to keep his neighbors from
calling the cops on the noise, I'm sure of it. When he started it up to
leave, it sounded like a distant explosion because I was across the parking
lot. 13 April 2012 at Abingdon Lowes, MD.

If you look up Vanguard Motor Sales in a thesaurus, one of the first words
you might find is "Mopar". That's because we've spent the few years
bringing Mopar fans the greatest array of exceptional cars ever offered for
sale. This stunning purple Supercharged 1968 Plymouth Barracuda continues
that tradition and presents you, the serious collector, with yet another
chance to expand your collection.
This Cuda went through an extensive restoration in 2007. The solid metal
body is straight, clean and rust free. There is no bondo, no waves and no
ripples. After all that hard work, the car was sprayed with its beautiful
purple metallic paint. The result is a fantastically straight Cuda that
looks like it could have rolled out of Dodge Main yesterday. Panel gaps,
door and trunk lips and margins are exceptional, the doors and trunk open
and close with very little effort and the cars deep purple metallic paint
has little to no defects or wear. All of the chrome and stainless is
equally as nice.
The first thing you will notice under the hood is that Paxton Supercharger, attached to the 340ci motor. The
casting number on the motor is 2780930-340. Turnbuckle ties are holding
this baby down. Once you get past that sweet looking Supercharger, you will see that this Cuda also is
wearing a MSD Ignition, a remote oil filter, breather canister and an
Optima battery. There are coated headers as well. Make no mistake; this car
runs just as well today as it did when it rolled into the dealership in
1970 and it's one of the few muscle cars that can still run with the best
The bottom of the car has been well taken care of as well. Matched up to
that 340 Supercharged motor, is a 4-speed transmission, which shifts
awesome. The casting number for the trans is 99129, and there is another
stamp with # 9B327429. There is a posi-traction rear end, with what we
believe to be 3:50 gears. There are some minor repairs in both driver side
and passenger side rockers and one small patch on the floorboard, all of
which have been done extremely well. There is no rust to be found, the
undercarriage of this Cuda is solid! A new stainless steel gas line and new
gas tank were included in the restoration, as well as a Flowmaster Exhaust system (2.5" out back and 3" feeders).
Cross drilled rotors and front disc brakes keep this Cuda between the
lines. The upper control arms are tubular, there are new spindles and
eurethane bushings on the radius arms. The front fenders have no signs of
repairs, they look to be original metal. Sitting on all four corners are
17" Billet wheels and BF Goodrich G-Force tires.
Inside the car has been completely restored and features beautiful white
upholstery, and headliner. Sitting between the bucket seats is a beautiful
console and Hurst shifter. In front of the driver is a stunning wood Grant
steering wheel and a set of Auto-Meter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite gauges. In the
center of the dash there is a Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo system, which sounds
great, and underneath that is a duo of aftermarket gauges. All of the
interior lights work and the black carpet is in beautiful shape. The
fold-down back seat gives plenty of extra storage for your cooler and
folding chairs. This car is ready for a summer cruise, and the local car
This is a rare, Supercharged 340 Cuda that is 100% complete inside and out.

If you're a fellow enthusiast who's looking to satisfy an unrelenting need
to go fast and make a big statement, this award winning A-Body is just your
Completed in November of last year, this clean classic is the direct
product of an intense build and world class artistic talent. Its build
began with a body that was stripped and dipped to remove every remnant of
rust and pitting which is typically left behind by traditional metalwork.
Once that body was completely sanitized, an experienced builder came out of
retirement to tap its panels into better than factory straight condition.
With test fitting complete, Tom Argue of Tom Argue Design laid down a great
looking Viper Black and Viper Orange color combination, and executed a full
detail which included intricate Metallic Gray and Silver divider stripes,
body-matched jams, and spectacular ghosted Barracudas. Once that brilliant
paint was dry, the car was shipped to final assembly and buffed to the kind
of expo center shine that anchors vendor booths and graces marketing
Carefully raise the car's bright orange hood and you'll find 605 cubic
inches of naturally aspirated Hemi power! With a nasty 11.3 to 1
compression ratio, and enough torque to drag the Chrysler building from New
York to New Jersey, this solid mounted Indy block is an all-aluminum Mopar
monster which is capable of producing some flat out scary trap speeds!
Inside the massive Hemi hood scoop, a low profile air cleaner feeds two 600
cfm Holley 4-barrel carburetors which send a 50/50 mix of racing fuel and
94 octane pump gas into a Mopar Performance cross ram intake. At the sides
of that intake, Indy Legion heads bridge the gap between slick aluminum
valve covers that are fitted with silver Moroso breathers and Wiseco
pistons that are connected to a Callies Magnum crankshaft. And at the front
of that intake a billet points distributor, which is spun by a Comp Cams
hydraulic camshaft, sends fire from an MSD coil to loomed Moroso Ultra 40
Race Wires. Lubrication for the big engine is provided by a Keith Black oil
system which shuttles fluid between a front mount cooler, an Oberg Tattle
Tale filter and a Charlie's eight quart aluminum pan. Cooling comes
courtesy of a high flow aluminum radiator which shoots water past a giant
pulley fan and a polished overflow tank to a billet thermostat housing. And
Exhaust duties are handled by a sweet
set of custom fabricated stainless steel headers.
Behind the Hemi, a five clutch A727 Torqueflite heavy duty transmission
shifts quickly and efficiently while a 3,000 RPM stall converter provides
wheel stand inducing bite during hard launches. Out back there's a fresh
Strange Dana 60 Posi-traction rear end which is equipped with both a spool
and pavement pounding 4.11 gears. And at the front of the car, modern rack
and pinion steering provides the kind of quick reflexes needed to counter
the big engines straight line fury. Stops come courtesy of a Baer four
wheel disc system which squeezes giant calipers around an impressive set of
drilled and slotted rotors. Exhaust
rolls from the aforementioned custom headers into vicious sounding custom
stainless steel pipes that are complete with an X-pipe crossover and slick
Magnaflow mufflers. And momentum builds via proven 15 inch Weld Pro Star
aluminum wheels which wear giant Hoosier Pro Street radials.
Open this A-Body's solid closing doors and take in its custom Saddle
interior which, as a combination of serious hardware and lavish aesthetics,
serves as the perfect Jekyll to the car's 605 cubic inch Hyde. The first
thing you'll notice is leather front bucket and rear bench seats that are
so soft and supple they'd be more at home living life 100 miles at a time
as opposed to a quarter mile at a time. Between those seats, a new Hurst
Pro Matic 2 shifter ratchets toward an obligatory fire extinguisher. In
front of those seats, a custom dash hangs classic white-faced Auto Meter
gauges inside a slick and subtle faux carbon fiber insert. And in front of
the driver, a three-spoke aluminum steering wheel spins a classy wood rim
around a tilt column that's complete with a full set of billet stalks.
