Name That Engine!

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for the name of the engine, what car it was used in, and what was the unique feature that eventually lead to its downfall?

I find it humorous the starter is the same size as the transmission.

I agree, it is interesting that the two are similar in size.

It's a Crosley CoBra ("Copper Brazed") engine...made out of sheet metal instead of cast iron.

Yep. Looks very Crosley-esque to me as well.

Me too. I mean, the word "CROSLEY" is stamped plain as day on the side of it.

Heh. Didn't even notice. Was more interested in that monster air cleaner.

Didn't notice that. My monitor must not be that sharp. Here's what it looks like on my screen.
