Antique Vintage Classic 1957 Chevy Panel Van Truck 235 straight 6
cylinder with two (2) 1 one barrel carburetors. Lots of pep. Blue
Flame? Manual 3 speed with 2 over drive gears, (1, 2, 2 over, 3, 3
over) Moved from column to floor. The mechanic who modified this
into a hotrod in the 70's installed a motor taken from a 1953
corvette. The first year corvette was 6 cylinders. I was later told
that the number on the motor was from a truck. Both trusted
sources, so I don't know if Chevrolet used a modified truck motor
for the first corvettes or what? UPdate- A cl viewer emailed the
following: Quoting John Ardrey : > they called the corvette
motor the blue flame it was a 235 cid truck motor This is a
restoration project. It was running great when parked/stored in the
middle to late 1980's. Has some rust areas but not bad. Had it
undercoated in early 1980's when I worked in other states for a
couple of years. That's also why it no longer has original
California plates. Has a couple of dents, replaced rear bumper and
one back door, all separate incidents. Back door & bumper was a
roll away when parking brake didn't hold, and side was from Dad
misjudging while backing up his motorhome. Also dash has been cut.
Non-op'd for many years, have title and pink slip. Please Note The
