Chrysler Slant Six engines.

In 1960, Chrysler replaced its flathead six-cylinder engines with Slant Six engines. The engines came in 170cid and 225cid versions. To create the 225cid version, they raised the deck height and used longer con rods. The crankshaft looked weird with weird-shaped counterweights and four mains. The oil pan had center sump. If a driver accelerates very fast, oil will be moved to rear end of the engine, causing oil pressure to drop. I found this out on "Uncle Tony Garage" website.
