It’s now official.  I have been notified that I’ve been selected as a competitor in the 2015 Engine Masters Challenge.  Here’s what the current engine lineup for the Vintage Engine class looks like for this year.
 
Vintage
Kustom Kemps Packard
SAM’s Chris Bennett Mopar 318 Poly
Buck Hinkle Mopar 318 Poly
Ted Eaton Ford Y-block
Jon Kaase Ford Y-block
RB Vintage Engines Ford Y-block

 
RB’s engine is actually a Lincoln Y-Block but close enough to call this year’s Vintage Engine Class a Y versus Poly shootout.

What am I missing?  If it is 1954 or earlier, why is a 318 Poly permitted?  The poly came around in '55, did it not?

Either way, that will be a neat engine to see run.

Charlie, The Poly was given an exception to allow participation. I am guessing because early Hemis cannot run in vintage, this would allow Chrysler to compete.I am not so sure that the Packard did not come out in 55 as well. I was really surprised no Buicks, Olds, or Caddillacs are in the competition.

I wish they had allowed the Hemi.  If they do it again next year, I think they should use a slightly later date, and simply keep all mainstream engines out of it, so no FE Fords, no SBC, no mall block Mopar, and allow the early Hemi, if only to see how the other engines compare to the legend - I bet the results would be surprising.

Can any other participants be added at this point or are these the only 6 that there will be?

Isn't the Poly motor a Hemi block without the heads?

Y's guys rule!
Looking for McCullouch VS57 brackets and parts. Also looking for 28 Chrysler series 72 parts. And early Hemi parts.

Chuck the poly is kind of a semi hemi. It has canted valves but a single rocker shaft. They were introduced in Plymouths. They were cheaper to mfg that the Gen 1 hemi and lighter as well. Their heads flow pretty well. They will make some good numbers.  The EMC has all hemis lumped together gen 1 2 and 3 in one class.  A few yrs ago a Gen 1 hemi finished 2nd or 3rd overall so they have some big potential..If they were allowed in vintage they would be very tough to beat.

6 engines is a full field..

There are two Poly motors.
One is pretty much an early hemi with poly heads, which has little in common with later LA engines (273, 318, 340, 360).
The other Poly has little to do with the early hemi and does have more in common with the LA engines.  These 318s will be the later variant.
