Default Brazilian V8-60 OHV

In regards to the Brazilian V8-60 based OHV....

I have technical information regading this unique engine. (it's more than an OHV conversion!)
These engines and parts have become VERY hard to find,
I have been collecting pieces for awhile now,and finally have enuf parts to justify the shipping costs.
They will be arriving sometime in Jan.2005
I will keep what I need for my project,and sell the extras.

I have LOTS of photos of the engine and parts, but the attacment limit is too small to post here,
feel free to e-mail if you are interested.

the display engine shown below belongs to a good friend of mine...enjoy

Lakes,
I am in Portland.
un-fortunatley you cannot "sneak a peek" at this display motor....unless you want to go to BRAZIL.
That engine belongs to a friend of mine in Brazil,who has been helping me to locate parts.
When I get mine here I would be glad to have you visit and inspect it.

Cool, I didn't think they where so rare as they came stock on Simcas (whatever they where called in Brazil)
So why isn't it "just" a OHV conversion?

Christian,
True hey came stock on Simcas, but that was 34yrs ago (last ones built in 1970)
And there are not too many auto salvage yards in Brazil,so most have been recycled for the metals....
More than on OHV conversion, because they have a unique engine block, NO exhaust ports,and a re-enforced crankshaft main line,and of course passages to oil the rocker arms.

That company that makes the 3/4 scale Deuce built one with a V8-60 and it was perfect scale for the car. the last time I checked their website there were no pictures of it as they had built a new one with a OHV 4 banger. As far as I'm concerned you couldn't beat the looks of the V8 60 powered one. One with the hemi head conversion would be over the top.

If you can't find a steel car, there's www.chuppshotrods.com with the 3/4 '32 roadster, www.gibbonfiberglass.com with a Model Y sedan or 3W coupe, and www.usbodysource.com with a Bantam sedan/coupe. The Y is well accessorized with bumpers,w/s frame, hood and repro frame, but production is only when enough orders are taken. For a narrow front axle I'd consider a cut down version of Worm's air bag axle. (Check www.cenpen.com) so you don't lose the ride with a real short leaf spring. www.roadsters.com can supply a narrow axle. However if you want to display the engine you may want to check out the Bantam and no hood. If you are hunting steel, there's a Bantam roadster in the HAMB classifieds now. But sit crossways in your hall and imagine driving, take a few measurements, then look at these options. You will probably want to bump out the flat firewalls like a '34 does to gain some leg room.

If you want a cool 3/4 scale car, consider the British Model-Y. It looks like a 3/4 scale '34 Ford Tudor!

A few pics from the net of the Brazilian OHV version of the Chrysler Esplanada engine.





A quick search on the Internet and I found a few cars for sale so I guess that it possible to find those cars down there for the right money...

I am pretty sure Chrysler France and Simca were connected.
There was some Badge engineering going on in the '70s or '80s...
