    I'm running a 5.9 Magnum with a 5 speed in my 39 Plymouth, not finished but a nice package. I had a 318 wedge, but it won,t fit between the fenders so I had to scrap that idea.....
     
  2. I have in my 1932 Ford a 1948 Lincoln Continental V12 flat head here are a few pictures of it.

    A friend of mine installed a Jag 12 in his Corvair in the 80's using a Pontiac transaxle. It still sounded like a Corvair!

    Pick-A-Part has a lot of "semi-exoctic" engines. I recently saw a V12 BMW that was nearly untouched.
     
  11. I will do a video of the engine running and I will post it here.

    I had a similar experience when I took my Falcon in to a local shop to try and diagnose a noise in my Falcon six. Not only couldn’t the mechanic diagnose it, he suggested I just swap in a 302.

    To be thoroughly on topic - it's a Willys and a V 12.

    Yes it is a Miura SV spec engine (single distributor original on A/C Miura SV only) and transaxle - and yes it will fit - just....
