Packard V8 in a stepdown
I got to wondering if Hudson or anyone every installed a Packard V8 into a stepdown. It would have been interesting if the stepdown would have still been competitive in NASCAR with it? Hudson did have a '55/'56 body designed on the stepdown that looked close to what the HASH '55 did. Although the Packard V8 was no lightweight, and still had some early teething issues, it still was a potent performer, especially when you went wth the 374cu and dual quads.
