Show us your Straight Six!

Post by VANagain on Sun Sep 26, 2010 2:39 pm

Let's see all those Chevy six cylinders out there! I got the idea from a Chevy truck site. (Man, those guys don't know how easy they got it with all that room under the hood!) They don't all look like this one but WOW!



Here is mine. It's a rebuilt 250 I bought from ATK. It's got a Rochester Monojet and HEI:

Is that red or orange? If it's red, that's the exact inverse of my color scheme. I've got a black block and head, and red tin!!

Good stuff, guys!!

I don't know why but my Chevy orange engine shows up as red in photos too.

VanGo, that's your hot rod? It's cool seeing one with a straight 6 for a change! I saw a wild one here last March. Totally custom tube frame. He must have wanted to really show off that engine because he put the radiator in the back, cooled by two electric fans.







Hmm, where are the valve cover bolts?
