    The truck engine is the same as the car engine. It's a standard, 195 HP engine. And according to 'Less Than They Promised', more likely than not, GM brought a few engines in from Flint. It's not a big deal to paint a complete engine. PITA to paint just the valve covers.

    Keep in mind that this was their bread and butter V8. This was the base V8 for the Chevelle, the Impala/Bel Air/Biscayne, the Nova and the Chevy pick up trucks. Add in the Canadian cars...

      Sorry Ray, I stand corrected. I was only referring to the engine and did not consider parts that linked to the peripherals so you must be correct. I did say that the Chevy replacement fuel pump had a "slight" modification.

        I never assume any Studebaker has the original engine, but the 283"s I've pulled out of Studes were identical in every way to the Chevy 283"s, including the rod bolts.
