    I saw an old Anglia Gasser yesterday that had an sbc & 4 speed. The bellhousing had "Corvette pass" cast into it. I've never seen this before, has anyone else? I couldn't see too well, but it looked like the valve cover bolts were staggered, so I'm guessing '50s or early '60s.

    Cool! I'm not really a Chevy guy but it doesn't hurt to learn this stuff just for the hell of it. I keep thinking about buying it, but haven't owned a Chevy motored car in nearly 30 years, so I'd be going "back to school" a bit.
