Default Valveless Ford?

I was just reading an article about a mans 1931 Model A Ford Tudor and in it he stated that he changed the worn out engine and replaced it with a 1929 model A engine. He stated that it was a 200.5 cubic inch valveless 4 cylinder engine. My research on such an engine has not turned up anything. Has anyone heard of a valveless Model A engine?

Nope, standard flathead 4 cyl. A bogus story.

Unless he put the engine in without valves but then noted a distinct lack of compression.

Maybe he *thought* it was valveless since he didn't see a rocker cover...

Possible it was a mis-print and another word was meant. Or the engine he acquired for insertion was without valves and they had to be installed.

I have never heard of anything like that in a vintage Ford. Misprint I would say.
