Is this a Hemi?
I came across an abandoned Chrysler Imperial in the Yukon. I took a photo of the motor, without knowing if it was a Hemi of not. Since then, I've learned more about Hemi engines, but I still can't tell if this is a Hemi or not. I added a photo of the car too.

No, that is not a "Hemi". IIRC, that is what they called a "poly sphere" engine, the fore runner of the wide block 318.

No. It looks like a 317.
