If you have or are contemplating a 235 Chevy Inline 6 performance engine, you are probably aware of some of its history. Dating back to 1929, the "Stovebolt '' 6, as it was called by it's affectionate owners, was created to compete with the Model A Ford. This 6 cylinder inline, with overhead valves was advertised as "A Six For the Price of a Four ''.

Well, the marketing worked, because sales were so good of the Chevy 6, it forced Henry Ford to scrap the model A and build the V-8 powered 32. One of the other popular names of the 235 Chevy inline 6 was the “Blue Flame Six''. Chevrolet used this term frequently to describe a “blue flame” as more complete combustion and proof that their design was superior.

Many of you probably know so much more than we have lightly covered on the famous Chevy 235 engine. It’s basic design remained similar to it’s predecessor, the 216. Known for durability and shocking power when modified, the venerable 235 was the first engine ever installed in America’s first sports car, the Corvette in 1953. With a lifespan of 33 years, the blue flame six has quite a reputation and following. With a healthy 3-7/8 bore and 3-1/4 stroke, the old 235 is a capable performer and beauty when dressed up.
