What Am I? Under The Lid

Welcome to another edition of DT's cure for the Monday morning blues, everybody's least favorite crying game -- What Am I?  Last week, I thought I had found the ultimate in unsolvable quiz, a Facel Vega with a Toyota 18R-G swap, but my mistake was finding a car that was so cool that others had picked up the this week's What Am I? topic is a bit less cool.

What Am I?  Comments below.


  1. Ford something.

    Looks like a ford transit connect van or 2/3 sized e150.

    1. Also could be a chevy or dodge something.

      I'm just trying to cover all of my bases.

  2. It's an MV-1 but not sure which one specifically.

    1. RyanM -- good eye. That is the Ford 4.6 liter V8 inside an MV-1. -Vince

    2. The list of non-FoMoCo things the 4.6 is crammed into isn't that long or distinguished. And since this had the clean look of a factory effort, vs a backyard swap, it narrowed the list down considerably. The giveaway was the Tonka-truck looking cowl cover. This was a good one.

    Excellent observations, I had a feeling it was a Ford Engine, it just didn't match up to any of their products.
