What more can be said about the Chevy 350 crate engine? It is only THE most ubiquitous internal combustion power plant in the universe, and with good reason. More Chevy 350 crate engines have been installed in race cars, hot rods, muscle cars, boats, or even industrial applications than probably any other engine. That’s not an exaggeration. Thousands of years from now, a future archaeological dig might just turn up a 350 Chevy crate engine.

It all started in 1955, when the small block Chevy eclipsed the Flathead Ford as America's sweetheart hot rod engine. The little 265 grew and grew up into the powerful 350 cubic inch small block v-8 in 1967. Sporting a 4" bore and a 3.48" stroke, the Chevy 350 had big engine power in the small block platform.

In the early days, it was common to take a 350 to the machine shop and have a used engine re-machined for rebuilding. As machine shop prices went up and up and the number of automotive machine shops dwindled. The real solution to this hot rodder’s dilemma was to produce a ready made, high performance Chevrolet 350 engine you could buy ready to go in a crate shipped to your door. The era of the Chevy 350 crate engine was born. It seemed there was a Chevy 350 crate engine for sale on every corner back in the day.
