Restored Continental AV1790-5B tank engine at the American Armored Foundation Tank Museum in Danville, Virginia.

The Continental AV1790 was an American tank V-12 engine. Produced by Continental Motors, the AV1790 was used in a variety of limited production or pilot heavy tanks, including the M53 and M55 Howitzer, T30, T34, T43 (neither to be confused with the Soviet T-34 or T-43), T57, and T58, as well as the production M103 tank (derived from the T43) and the M51 recovery vehicle. There were also diesel versions (AVDS, automotive vee engine diesel supercharged) for the M47, M48, and M60 Pattons.

The AV-1790-5B is also the engine of the Blastolene Special, a custom car owned by Jay Leno.
