    Yes, I believe he got it off the pad behind the distributor. How can I help him identify whether its a 230 or a 250?

    this is for 66.....
    The 230


    • The 1966 Chevelles, El Caminos and Novas could be equipped with the 230-cubic-inch in-line six. The engine had a single-barrel carb, a 3.87-inch bore, 3.25-inch stroke and 8.5-1 compression ratio. It developed 140 horsepower and 220 ft.-lbs. of torque[​IMG]. Chevrolet kept the engine until 1969. The three-speed manual or automatic complemented the engine.

    The 250


    • The 1966 Chevrolet Impala and Chevy station wagons and trucks received the single-barrel carb, 250-cubic-inch six as the base engine. It had a 3.87-inch bore and 3.53-inch stroke with an 8.5-1 compression ratio. It developed 155 horsepower and 235 ft.-lbs. of torque. It continued to power Chevys and GMC trucks through 1984. The three-speed manual or automatic came with the engine.

    Great, thanks for the info guys I'm trying to get more info from him. My question is are they worth anything? Would they be ideal for a early chevy say 1953/54 Chevy car? I imagine parts would be easy to find.

    Might get 20 mpg. Not worth much around here. Is it free to get it out of his yard?
