VLA HI observations of the interacting pair IC 2163/NGC 2207 are presented. The velocity and structural anomalies of IC 2163 agree with predictions of N-body galaxy encounter simulations if IC 2163 recently underwent a strong, prograde, in-plane encounter with NGC 2207. The velocity disturbances in NGC 2207 suggests that the main tidal force on NGC 2207 was perpendicular to the disk of NGC 2207.
