Starter interchange

Saw this posted on another forum, unverified. " I just read some interesting information in a parts catalog. It looks like the 146 tooth Chrysler starters will directly interchange with the '51-'53 Oldsmobile V8 (6 Volt) starters, which also have 146 tooth flywheels. Also, the '57-'58 Chrysler starters with 172 tooth flywheels will interchange with '54-'56 Oldsmobile starters that are even the same 12Volt drive voltage. So that may open up more possibilities if someone can't find an original Chrysler starter for a decent price.

How is this useful? I found aftermarket hi-torque starters for the Oldsmobile that are $60 cheaper than the equivalent Hemi starter, and yet they have the same part number!!"
