    Anyone have a photo of one?  It would have been nice if the eBay seller would have shown a photo of the engine.

    I believe they meant to say square block flathead I-6. I will ask the seller to post a picture and clarify what engine it has. Hopefully he will respond with an answer. According to my research a flathead V-6 has not been produced.

    According to the article mentioned in the ad (from the March/April 2015 issue of Vintage Truck), the truck has the 212 cid L-head inline six engine.

    Take care,

    The seller did confirm that the truck has a flathead  inline 6 cylinder engine.
