Oldsmobile's flathead straight six in Chevy and GMC trucks
In the Oldsmobile's flathead straight six in Chevy and GMC trucks section, an IP editor put the following comment:
(an edit) It is my understanding that they used an Oldsmobile engine in 1937 and a Pontiac Engine in 1938.
I don't have it in front of me, but there's a GM "75 Years" history which mentions a 400ci inline 6 available in 7 ton commercials, too. TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 22:32, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
I uploaded these pictures of a blue flame in-line 6 on a 1953 Corvette convertible. Can someone verify if it is genuine?
- Not expert, but the Blue Flame valve cover looks gennie. The 3-pot setup isn't stock, AFAIK, tho it might be 'vette-spec. Those chrome hats I would doubt are stock, either; again, maybe 'vette-spec. Might want to post the question at the Project page to get more eyes on it.
