 Could be. What interests me is the top picture looks like the intake and exhaust have been traded around. It appears the exhaust is coming out the intake ports???

 

 

 

By 'idiot' I mean someone went out on a limb and made it happen. I imagine many laughed at it.

 

Wankel. It has it's uses but generally it's an evolutionary dead end and why it's not used today. Like steam engines.

May be a case of the proverbial narrow borderline between Idiot and Genius.

Absolutely! Only when it's understood by many is it genius.

I just did some searching as I couldn't remember how they were stock. They didn't have cross flow heads stock so that has to be a custom-built head. That is if that is a straight 8 like I think?

Pretty sure that's a Buick V8. Some out-of-the-box thinking going on there. One of the early rail jobs. Lots of experimentation going on during that time period of drag racing. The the best part is the blower mounted in front of the engine and coupled directly to the crank snout.  Couldn't do that with the intake in the V.
