    I was told this is the original motor for my 56 pickup. It's a supersonic 226 but has a super hurricane head. Anyone know if this was used in the 56 pickups and should I find the correct head ?

    It was. I read Kaiser used the supersonic blocks with hurricane heads in the truck for a bit. Don't know if that true though

    Well, if it's true then your engine is how it came from the factory so that has the cool factor. :)

    Well, a catalog I got from Willys America says the Super Hurricane and the Super Sonic are the same motor, but that's all I see at the moment.
