    Learned something new,I had never heard of a DOHC hemi, I bought a model car, a 70 pro street coronet, and the engine is a DOHC hemi, I figured it was just a pretend motor somebody made up, but I guess it actually existed
    In real life it was just a prototype, and never ran under its own power, it sounds like it was just made to scare Ford and the SOHC 427, but when NASCAR said the SOHC 427 wasn't allowed, the DOHC hemi was scrapped
    But wow 4 camshaft and 4 valves per cylinder....in 1964!! seems like ma mopar always had a few tricks up their sleeves, and was often ahead of their time

      Many prototype back in the crazy 60's. IIRC it was a well done bluff, but had engineering potential.
