235 inline Chevy 6

Hi,
Looking for the current best thoughts and guidance on "Street rodding" a 235 6 cylinder Chevy. NOT looking to beat any drag strip records, just have some fun.
Cheers.

what year engine we talking about? first thing I would do to any 235 is put a Corvette cam in it, it's ground just a bit hotter than the regular model cam and available new/ regrinds. put a set of fenton headders on it and a 2 carb intake manifold. you could shave the head a little to gain compression if you wanted.

yep DEEP pockets, 3.5k for the 12 port, prolly worth it. say your car has wayne engeneering stuff in it to anybody who knows what there about, is worth sompthing.

That's what I put in my '53 Chevy pickup. Shaved the head 1/10" for ~9,5:1 compression, hardened valve seats, warm camshaft, converted the stock distributor with Chrysler electronic innards, Fenton headers, Clifford aluminum intake w/ 390cfm Holley, Offy aluminum covers, and anything that isn't chrome or polished aluminum is powder coated white. Adapted it to a 200R4 OD tranny w/ a Stovebolt Engine Co. adapter, In short, go for it, they make great warmed up street engines and a welcome change from the ubiquitous and boring SBC.
