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

That's it Dave. The '46 Data Book talks about the counterweights being integral for the Six and 282 Eight, and bolted into position for the 356. Perhaps this was one of its cost drivers.
OK, since all Eight lengths were the same, most likely the '51 axle-dash length and bonnet were designed to package the 356 had a Custom series materialized. Am interested because am taking a closer look at what defeated the '51 Custom and how it might have been avoided. Robert Neal's book has been very helpful; so thankful for what he left us.
