Hall Scott 400 Series gasoline engine

Recommended Posts

Hall Scout build truck engines  until the 1960's. Most of them were gasoline engines because the early diesel engine weren't powerful enough for trucks.. All major truck manufactures like Peterbilt, Kenworth, Mack or Autocar offered Hall Scott engines either as gasoline or butan engines.

I will install this engine in a Peterbilt 280 COE from Strato model.

I used Fusion 360 to design the 3D model and a Anycubic Mono X as a printer.

Very impressive work on this engine. Glad you were able to find detailed original photos for reference. Any info on what color the Hall Scott was painted?

I'm not sure because nearly all pictures that I found were b&w. The later diesel engines were painted dark green, so I''m think about to paint mine dark green

Excellent work Michael! Great powerplant choice for a 50's big rig! They look very similar to a big diesel engine. Here is another big gas engine from the era.
