Looking good. Glad to know I am not the only one who is slow. The engine in the AMT/Lindberg Dodge D-100 pickup kit (repop Little Red Wagon) is a small block Chrysler engine around the 318 line. Also the AMT 41 Plymouth coupe has a small-block that is possibly a Chrysler product.
I build models because GOD allows me to and because I can't afford the real thing!!

thanks Guys, Rick the motor im after is a A motor like the one in the pic below the one in the 41 plymouth kit is a LA motor later engine & much smaller motor in size to the early A Block the best way to ID is the Rocker Covers have wavy edge to them,They were produced from late 50s to early 60s.. & sorry for the lesson on A & LA Motors. Thanks for the help Rick

Paul, Speedy,
Greetings down under there! Happy New Year.:)))
The engine in your picture there is a 318 yes, but not an A block engine. It is a 318 Polysherical or Semi Hemi Engine. Kind of a big block 318 if you will. It is from the same family that the early v8 Hemi's were that culminated with the 392 Hemi, but has it's heads constructed slightly differently (more economically) than the Hemi. I had one in a Plymouth Fury. It is an extremely noisy engine and a real powerhouse, though Chrysler wasn't using it as such at the time, more of a sort of hold over passenger engine.

To build it, you would want to use a 392 Hemi block, and Big Block Chevy Valve covers sanded and filed to the shape you see. Put the stamped or shaped design on the top with some evergreen or plastruct or scrap styrene. Distributer is in the back, not in the front as on a modern A block.

Any questions or if you want the modern A block that was an option in the 41 Plymouth most recently let me know. I can send it on down.

Hi Dave ,I think this what your try to get at......303/313/318 and 326 "A" series Chrysler Polys are all the same, but different from the "Late A", LA series 273/318/340/360 Valiant style engine Downunder!!!......big end,main & cam bearings, Oil Pumps, timing chains, fuel pumps, Dissys and water pumps fit(check pump outlets tho' as these are different).......intake manifolds,exhaust manifolds and heads are different A to LA series.Due to the wider Hemi style Block.So what were saying is the early 331/354 etc Early Hemi Block was the foundation for the Poly Block !!! :unsure: I think thats what were saying. Paul.......
