Re: Would the 356 have packaged in the '51?

The 356 was dropped after the 1950 season. The engines available in 1951 were only the 288 and 327 straight 8 engines.
Not sure how the 356 compares to the 288 or 327 in length?
But the motor mounts were also changed to side mounts on the engine block. The 356 was also heavier in weight than the 288 and 327 straight 8s.
