    Default Chrysler Marine 426 Hemi

    For years I've heard that Chrysler Marine never built a 426 Hemi. I just bought book of every Chrysler Marine Service Bulletin from 1964 to 1971 and dated 11-20-65 is a eighteen page spec sheet on the marine 426 hemi.
    525 HP @ 6400 RPMs
    490 Ft/lbs 4000 RPMs
    left hand rotation only
    12.5:1 Compression ratio
    Twin Holley 4bbl carbs on cross ram intake
    copper monel tubular/jacketed exhaust headers
    72 C velvet drive

    I remember seeing an ex Ontario Provincial Police boat for sale a few years ago..it was a 1965 Sheppard, 35 or 36 feet I think, with a pair of those monsters in it, still kicking myself for not going to at least take a look at it

    Honestly, no.

    I think they went from the earlier 392 Hemi's right to 413's or 440's but I just thought it was an interesting article since you brought it up.

    The 426 Hemi was a 500hp race engine. A 32' boat will have 426 Wedge engines.
