Has anyone attempted to install a modern Chrysler/Dodge Hemi into a Step-down Hudson?
Wondering about dimensions of complete engine and trans install...

    Its on the ozrodders forum. Under the "construction" heading. I think its titled as 49 Hudson SRT8. builder's screen name is Choco. It also has Jag suspension front and rear.

    There is MOPAR Viper V10 Stepdown Posted on the Facebook Hudson Forum now. If this will fit a Hemi should be no Problem...

    I put one in my 47 Business Coupe. Cars not done yet but like Airbrush guy said if a V10 will fit, a Gen II Hemi should fit fine.
