Can anyone identify what it’s off of?


Recommended Posts

Front bumper would have a plate bracket in it. No plate bracket means it has to be somewhere else like in the tailgate or rear door. I'm voting 70's Ford van rear bumper. The bolt location says Ford not Chevy to me...

 

Note how the inboard bolts are stacked on the GM

See how the inner most is on top and the lower bolts are farther out on Ford?

Didn't realize GM recycled the Nomad name back into vans, just like I was unaware I think it was Dodge made a Suburban until I walked into a buddies shop and he was building this

That's not a Plymouth? Thought they made the Suburban wagons.

I believe that is a 55 Plymouth Wagon, BUT what in the heck is that motor?

I recognize 273,318-semi-hemi,318,340,360,361,383,413,426,426hemi,440 and V10, exactly what make and model of Mopar did that engine fall out of?

The bumper at 75" wide, is too wide for any Ford Econoline model? Many later model pickups had no bracket for a front plate (our 93 K series does not) but all the bumpers were taller and wider.

Industrial Hemi.  About the right vintage for the car I would guess... probably a 331.  The water ports into the head are the "Industrial" giveaway.  Industrial water pump went directly to those ports originally.  No heat cross-over provisions in those heads either.  There's a 413 wedge "truck" engine that has a similar designed water path and corresponding special pump that you don't find in cars - originally.
