pre-47 and 48-53 are fairly different styles. the later version is a better motor but if in a orignal vehichle from 32-47 i would suggest the earlier style despite certain improvements that you will be disregarding

What vehicle is the engine going into, how original do you want to be, and how much do you plan on spending to overhaul the engine?
