While we are on this subject, let's expand it. Anyone ever heard of a hemi with the 259 (260) CID displacement? The 259 was a "pure" Plymouth block, by all accounts. Still, people claim that there were 259 hemis made. The tales seem to have originated from Canada, where there were several variants of engines and engines used differently than in the States. So, has anyone ever seen an actual 259 (260) Hemi Red Ram? If so, in what? And was it documented as a factory build, or just a dealer or backyard creation?
