isn't funny how the motors just jump out of all these vettes out there and end up flying into every half ass junk out there? maby they should bolt them down better!! where did all the motorless vettes go? :cry: :cry:

I bet pepol put 6cyl's in the vettes because they were to powerful,or used the fiberglass to make boats.

There is apparently more to the "Corvette Motor" mystique than I thought.....It seems the motor didn't necessarily have to come in a Corvette from the factory to be valuable...It just needs to have been bolted into a Corvette at some point. :roll:

Haha, like this guy down the road with his "rare" 68 nova hatchback with a deluxe 305, little old lady owned it, haha, he says he wants 30k for it and its worth 2500 max! It so hard for everyone around her not to laugh while talking to him.

I was helping my dad put the engine into his El Camino this weekend.It is a dish piston 400 with double hump heads. I saw the heads and said "Oh man...double hump heads, this must be a corvette motor"

He looked at me like I was stupid and said ..."It came out of a station wagon."


I didn't know they made corvette station wagons.

that guy may have a really rare car!!68 nova hatchback.ive never seen one and with a 305. hell that engine is way ahead of its time considering it didnt even come out until the mid 70s, unless its the gmc 6cly truck engine.it may be worth 30,000 lol

LOL! "Camel Back" heads.... I just remembered another one. "angle plug" heads... if I remember correctly they were elite & had a mystique too. yeah, I want some of those 202 angle plug/double hump heads.
