I drug this thing home the other day, its a 1956 330ci 4 bbl. Desoto hemi. got it really, really cheap, not sure if it useable or not. its going to take some time/muscle/fire to get the pistons out. might look good in my Desoto? found it through word of mouth, it was not advertised anywhere.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v602/65rbdodge/hemi002_zps1f628b08.jpg (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/65rbdodge/media/hemi002_zps1f628b08.jpg.html) http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v602/65rbdodge/hemi008_zpscb5e5dc8.jpg (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/65rbdodge/media/hemi008_zpscb5e5dc8.jpg.html) http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v602/65rbdodge/hemi012_zpsbac63f80.jpg (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/65rbdodge/media/hemi012_zpsbac63f80.jpg.html) http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v602/65rbdodge/hemi016_zps0e9d518b.jpg (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/65rbdodge/media/hemi016_zps0e9d518b.jpg.html)

Good find. Even if it's not usable it's still something cool to have

i`m thinking if its not useable, i`ll clean it, put back together, paint it and keep it on an engine stand for some garage art.

anyone ever price what it cost to rebuild one of these or the price of the adapters to bolt anything on it besides stock parts? it nearly gave me a heart attack when i started looking.

Evaporust is available in 30 gal drums! Once saw a supercharged old style hemi in a Rampage at a show in Williamsport. Check with Mopar Muscle of Central PA, maybe they know him. http://www.moparmuscleofcentralpa.com/

I think I`ve seen that car around here at a show two years ago. I think it was copper colored? I tried talking to the owner but he gave me one word answers like he either was not friendly or didn't know anything about the car.

I'm shooting from the hip, but if those heads are salvageable, you may be able to bolt them on an old poly block. I'm not sure the exact CI's on the early ones, but I know it can be done. Either way, that's a cool find.

You should have made it a base for your mailbox as it would have been the talk of the town.
