Question type: Car Customization

How long did the Chevrolet Corvette have an in-line 6 engine?

4 Answers

44,255

Not very long...First year or couple, I'd think.

135

1953 and 1954, the in-line 6 was stepped up to 150, with 3 side draft carbs.

135

Since I made the answer above I found out they also made about 75 in-line sixes in 1955 also, but from then on they have the V-8s.

1,195

Correct. In 1955 the OHV Small Block V8 was introduced in 265ci. The leftover Blue Flame Six engines were installed in some early 55 models and when they were gone, the Corvette was to be a V8 powered sports car at least until 2015, hopefully it will never change.
