here are some pics of the motor, if anybody know's what it is, please let me know. I have heard it's a 216, 230, 235, even a 70 somthing chevy 4x4 truck motor, so I'm pretty much guessing still. lol





I also got some of axles...

that is a later 235 6cyl... pretty sure the axle is like '58-'64 Chevy, as it has a drop out pumpkin.. likely the engine/ trans/ rear came from a '58-'64 6cyl powered full size car... you likely have a 2spd powerglide

Well, I have to disagree about the year of the engine. My guess is 64 or newer as it has a P.C.V. valve, alternator and the valve cover is more wavy than the 63 and older. Also the distributor is farther to the front. Here is a link to my 63 Chev 235 in my 52 Chev. I added the alternator, its a simple conversion

The front axle looks stock so don't know what kind of drums and brakes are used.

I was thinking post-62. But I can't see the back of the block where the bell bolts on.

up to 62 did not have the v-8 bell pattern on the back of the block. 63 up would.

That's a solid looking truck, I had a friend with a truck just like it, he had a healthy 350 with a 4 speed, it ran like a scalded dog. I think he was about 17, he is now a high level engineer. You got a good project ahead, just hang around some veteran hot rodders and they will help you.

I remember one other thing..62 was the last year for the cast steel powerglide, in 63 they went to all aluminum with the v8 bolt pattern.

your right, it is a 194-250.. the exhaust manifold mount threw me. didn't think 194-250's bolted the intake and exhaust with the same bolt.. but they do..

so..it's a '64 or newer 235?

I'll see if I can't get some more pictures of it tomorrow or Saturday, so if you can think of anything you want pics of let me know, and I'll try to get them.

Thank y'all for the replies, it's nice to be able to ask questions and get informative responses about things!

'235 was discontinued after the 1963 model year.. what came after was a newer engine, in CID of 194, 230, or 250 CID, later a 292 was put into play, as a truck motor.. you have 1 of these engines..

Matt: Do you recall what year they started using the HEI ignition. If that engine is stock, And I think it is, it has a coil. Would that narrow it down to a 64 or possibly early 65?...Roy

anyway to tell for sure what motor/year it is? Doesn't really matter, I am just curious, plus if you know exactly what it is, it makes part searching quiet a bit easier.

We are going some places in a few, so I think I'm going to just go ahead and pull the exhaust off behind the cab ( if my parents will let me ) and put a turn down on it.

I was gonna start the Monte Carlo today, put my parents said to just leave it alone. lol

Chances are you have five bolt drums on the front of your truck from a 53-54 Chevy car. The inner and outer bearings are a combo of those used on the six bolt (original truck) and five bolt (53-54 car)drums. I can't remember which went where though. If I remember correctly I used the original shoes from the six bolt wheels. The car and truck shoes probably have the same part number.

"I think I'm going to just go ahead and pull the exhaust off behind the cab ( if my parents will let me ) and put a turn down on it."

I guess everyone needs to do this at least once to find out what it's like, but I don't think you'll like it if you're honest with yourself. The exhaust note will reverberate against the sheet metal of the bed and cab bottoms and will pretty much drive you crazy after a while.
