No, I am certain they were V12 Packards. I did a web search on PT
Boats, and confirmed my recollection.

Weren't there 3, V12 Packards in the PT boats? I think they were
not based on the Merlin, but certainly were similar in size and
The memory is very vague.
I think they were Chrysler engines. I know that Chrysler did a lot of
coupled engined arrangements. A 5 engine tank comes to mind.
