Well I thought you may all be interested in more info on it.

It is powered by a 4.0L (245 ci) flathead inline six good for 100 hp @3,600 and 200 lb-ft @ 2,000. A compression ratio of 6.3:1 (wheeze wheeze) (though it had an optional 7.0:1) and a 1-bbl Chandler-Groves downdraft (nasty leaker, I sear look it up). It is a 3 on the tree with second and third having synchromesh. It has a 6 volt system and 4 wheel drums and a turning circle of 19.17 ft (5.85 m). Iron block and aluminum head.
