Yup, the first USA-designed and made one.


First OHC engine? Not so sure, Duisenberg had both SOHC and DOHC production engines. 


The picture you posted of the Kaiser OHC engine, is that in the same Willys as shown in your avatar pic?

Thanks. I wasn’t aware of that. Hat tip to the Duesenberg engineeers. That’s impressive. Maybe one might consider the  Willys 230 OHC one of the first mass-market U.S. OHC motors. 

Yup, that pic is of the motor in my red-and-white 1964 Willys Wagon Traveller. Great engine.
