    Looks like a Tommy Ivo type motor. Difficult to tell...But, the intake seems to be a Nailhead as the two center runners are paired together. Cheaper to buy a model of the Showboat and get 4 motors at once.

    LOL!
    and yeah it's a weird model to figure out.. Does have the round bell housing and finned front timing cover ala Tommy Ivo.

    Ivo did make Nailhead stroker builds but I thought it more like 454ish??

    Tom had 467's in the Showboat which was later converted to the Riviera Wagonmaster.

    So it was the Showboat model engine at 467..:)
    There are so many pictorials of that car and the last one I saw said they were 401's bored and stroked to 454 cu. and got stuck on that.

    Drat....Peter, you made me go back and review my interview with Tom (many years back) and my memory wasn't as good as I thought. It was the twin that had the 1/2" strokers while the 4 engine dragster did indeed have the 454's. Sorry 'bout that.
