About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

The final form

The final form.

Is That a Hemi?

No it's not. For all the work that went into constructing it, you would think Chrysler would have made a more accurate model. Half-round valve covers and spark plugs wired to each other?

Check the wiring diagram!

I don't think those plugs will fire that way.

The fastest show

Upon completion, it would boast a front lighted panel saying : "GIANT ENGINE - 1,000,000HP - The fastest show at the fair"

Not a hemi

But man it has 254000 cubic inches
