A cam. 3 carbs, and a split manifold used to do the job nicely. You should still be able to find the parts. Back then lotsa guys would put a hopped up "Jimmy" in a Chevy because they said the water jacket was better and they ran cooler. Never been the biggest General Motors fan, but I still love to hear a Chevy or Jimmy six with a split manifold and dual glasspacks! "Course, anything that old, I don't care what brand it is, I like it! Good luck.

Saw this at a car show and thought it might give you some ideas. Sounded healthy when it was running. Its just one of those things you dont see every day. Bandit

I also wonder if they didn't like the GMC having full oil pressure to the connecting rods where as the Chevy's had dipper rods.

Thanks fellas!!
The pic is something I am looking to do but not as much chrome. This rig will be a driver not trailer queen.

Everyone has a 327, 350 or 383 conversion done. I want to make mine like a 1950's style sleeper.

Yeah, what's with the V8 thing? I want an early 70's GMC pickup with the 292 straight 6 and 3 on the tree. On the few I've come across, they're always swapped out with a small block 350 and turbo 400 trans.

I am currently building a 292 for my sons 1950 Chev Pick up truck. When done he should be able to leave most any thing behind off the line. It is bored out 60 over has a performance cam made by PBM products. It will also end up with a 4 barrel carb on it and a few other tricks. Wish it was as easy to find stuff for them as it was back in the late 60s but seems every body wants them V-8s

You may also punch in "John Lingenfelter Racing & Performance" He probably won more NHRA races with altereds and dragsters powered by the GM inline 6 than anyone else. He was killed in a racing accident but he was and still is the best IL 6 builder ever.

They used GMC engines because they had insert bearings and full pressure systems. Chev didn't have untill 53 in the powerglide and 54 in all their engines. The 270 GMC could be bored to 292 woth a split manifold,cam,and three duces would run a hole lot better than the stock chev.
