Do you have a Commodore 6 or 8? The 6 was a 262 cid 6cyl and the 8 was a 254 inline 8. That's what was stock and in 1948-49 those were your only options. Both are good engines but the 262 is the more modern of the 2. You can however put in a '50-'54 Hudson engine and your options open up a bit. You can put in a Hornet 308 (it will bolt right in.) 6 cyl. with or without dual carb twin H manifold. with option overdrive or hydramatic and that is in fact what a lot of Hudson owners do. A v8 is a poor option but I'm biased.
