Corvette Engines – What A Cornucopia!

by Mike –

I was walking around several car shows this past summer and noticed the many different types of Corvette engines. Corvette owners like to leave their hoods up which made it easier to take photos of the engines.

Corvette engines have different valve cover designs, different intake manifolds, fuel injection, carburetors and maybe super chargers? At least one of these engines is not original to the car and maybe more, I do not know.

The Corvette is America’s sports car as Chevrolet likes to remind us. I know very little about Corvette engines, maybe some of you knowledgeable readers will fill us in?

I am guessing this is not the original engine.

This is a beautiful engine but is it fast?

I have numbered the engine photos with the same number on the matching car photos.

This will make it easier for you to comment.

This last Corvette engine is actually not in a Corvette even though it is the original engine for this 1966 beauty.

  1. #12 – 1965 smallblock with Rochester fuel injection 375hp. Yes, it’s fast! GM quoted 10hp more than the 365hp solid-lifter 327.
    #14 – 1967 427cu in with Tri-Power (3x 2-barrel Holleys) for 400hp.

    But none look as good as your Bizzarrini with the cross-ram intake with Webers!

    Great pics, Mike.
