About Chevy 235 Engine

The Chevy inline straight-6 engine is one of the most important engines in the history of Chevrolet. Chevy 235 engines were some of the mainstays for the manufacturer through the first half of the twentieth century and became the base engine in 1955 when the V8 was added to the engine lineup. You can commonly find these engines from classic trucks dated in the 1940s and 1950s. Many Chevy enthusiasts recommend the Chevy 235 engines that came from Chevy models through the 1950s. Starting in 1950, these engines fit for Powerglide automatic transmissions. Versions from 1953 also feature a fully pressurized lubrication system, but you can only find them in cars that had Powerglide automatic transmission systems. Called the Blue Flame, this engine achieves an impressive 136 horsepower, while the solid-lifter version for manual transmissions hits 123 horsepower. The 235 is one of the most revered engines for the Corvette. Up until 1962, 235s are found in standard Corvette models. Known for its power and durability, the Corvette 235 is a notable high-pressure engine equipped with mechanical lifters. The 1954 version achieves 150 horsepower. With such a vast inventory on eBay, you can find many 235 engines.
