This just gave me so many ideas.

If I was better with metalworking I'd build an engine block sort of shaped chassis, with OPT's on the top where carburetors would go, tubes on an angle where cylinders would be and caps out the front with a belt on it, and a huge cap in the back where the distributor would be.

Use 807 tubes, then you could have spark plug wires.
