CPotD #82 (Motor Monday - Bolivian Style)

Today’s CPotD, sticking with the new theme-of-the-day, is of a 1960 engine. There were many first-year-only features on this engine. Most visible are the air-cleaner setup and thermostat. This was the only year the engine’s operating temperature was maintained by controlling the amount of air going into, rather than out of, the enclosure.

While this engine is not exactly stock, it is quite close. It resides in a very unusual ’60 4-door recently restored in an even more unusual location. Please go read all about this unusualness at Richard’s detailed website.
