The 1965 Barracuda offered a V8 but the Hemi Under Glass was the rear engine show car.

This one may be off-topic for excessive frontal area, but it might have a better CdA than the donor Ram pickup:

The term 'hemi' is short for hemispherical combustion chamber. The part of the cylinder head where the intake and exhaust are located is shaped as a dome. Dodge cars and trucks use this in V8 engines and it may be a trade name for them.

Would you like to know more?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemisp...ustion_chamber

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrysler_Hemi_engine

While USAians got V-6 and V-8s, the Oztralians got an inline six:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrysler_Hemi-6_Engine

Quote:
The Hemi-6 is a pushrod O.H.V. (overhead valve) engine, with combustion chambers comprising about 35% of the top of the globe. This creates what is known as a low hemispherical shaped chamber. Although the Hemi-6 does not contain truly hemispherical combustion chambers, the "Hemi" moniker was used primarily for its marketing cachet based on the reputation of Chrysler's 1950s-1970s (true) Hemi V8 engines.

The Hemi-6 valves are 18 degrees (included angle) along the crankshaft axis opposed valves, with intake valves as large as 1.96". The 6 intake and 6 exhaust valves open toward each other, and into the center of the combustion chamber. In addition, both valves are slightly inclined across the crankshaft axis (similar to a conventional "wedge" chamber). The cylinder head is a non-crossflow design, meaning the 6 intake and 6 exhaust ports are on the same (left, Australian and British passenger's side) of the engine.
I like the little Hemis:
  • 1952-53 Desoto 276c.i.
  • 1953-54 Dodge 241c.i.
Cut down into a slant-four, you'd have a 2-liter engine.

Sorry, but there wasn't an Interesting Aerodynamic headlight thread.

You could have provided an example; like this:
