1922 Paige 6-66 info needed

Recommended Posts

I have a 1922 Paige 6-66 touring car that needs a cylinder head.   Will a 1925 Paige 6-70 head work?  The head gasket is the same.  If anyone has a 6-66 Head available please call 508-932-9206 

 

Regards

Don

Absolutely fantastic car and an extraordinary value on a collector automobile. The Paige 6-66 Daytona was the first production car you could buy out of the showroom and exceed 100 mph. Given that the car had a auxiliary seat on the running board, that would be quite a run!

Dave, the Daytona that made the run must have had very tall gears which were probably not supplied with all Daytonas.  I've had a 1922 6-66 4-p phaeton ("Larchmont II") for 18 years and it runs out of revs at 40 mph.  Book shows 4.55 diff as standard, but this one may be more like 4.75.  In any event, I have a Mitchell overdrive on the shelf to install.  Given the 2-wheel brakes, I don't want to cruise over 45 mph, but the OD will take the strain at that speed off the engine.
