    Never existed, Mopar had flathead inline 6's but no V6's, no V6's at all in that time period.

    Flathead V-6?


    Ford had the small version of the flathead, the V-60, from 37-40 or 41, but it was 8 cylinders. Just 2/3 the size of their regular V-8. Interestingly I found out recently that it was continued in production until around 1956, with quite a few improvements, powering Simcas. It was manufactured in France and/or Brazil. In 1957 or 58 when Chrysler bought into Simca they gave the little V-60 an overhead valve hemi conversion. These were cool looking little motors.
