    Agreed, Chryslers tend to stick out over the frame rails.

    It doesn't look like it has block side mounts. Without them it would be a 53-55 Dodge 241 or 270

    Looks like a water crossover on front of the heads with the t-stat housing. I'd say Chrysler 354.

    valve covers are definitely Dodge, not the bigger style...

  12. Like was said - Little Dodge Red Ram - a 241 based - the later 270 and up had the side mounts - that intake is also a give away.

    The only side mount 270s were 1956 and they were all polys 55 270 did not have side mounts. Mopar was known to have exceptions
