Ok, it's not a GMC, it's a Chevy but you got the idea. It's your floor but if you are any self respecting trivia thread car nut you will go a little further with the descriptive name that usually goes with it. Kinda like "401 Buick Nailhead" when everyone knows a 401 Buick is a nailhead.

Wayne-Chevrolet "12-port" or "Cross-flow" they are also called. Yes that is one and the same, and how about this, the guy who owns the motor owns all moulds to cast all the parts!

I have been an inline six nut since I bought my truck with paper route money at 15. And I have known the guy who owns this motor and moulds for probably 35 years. Not a friend understand but another Chevy six guy that I saw at swap meets and the Nostalgia drags and stuff like that. He always had a HOT early 235 in what ever he drove, usually 50ish Chevy's. But I went over my buddies machine shop the other day when he called me to tell me he had this motor and he knew I would love to see it. I go over there right as they are about to fire it up and here is this old guy that I saw as a kid at swap meets. And his son is my buddies employee! What a small world when you become a part of a "community" like this.

It was so damn cool seeing that motor.

So is the guy who owns the engine Bob Toros? Toros is suppose to own the Wayne Chevy molds. He and Joe Pisano bought Veniola Pistion Co.
The engine you saw has a Howard Intake on it, who made the exhaust manifolds and why did you block one of the runners out? They look like Fentons.
It took me a while to figure this one out. The darned spark plugs were on the wrong side!
I just re-looked at your pic and maybe that isn't a Howard intake. who made the intake?
I've been dreaming about building a Wayne GMC for years.

Here's a easy one.

Who's driving this Ranchero and what can you tell me about this car?

This is going to be good, I know that's a crushed car in the back and he's at a steel mill with the magnet about to grab that block in the back.

On the manifold, it's a Wayne, remember it's a 12 port so this head is all it will fit on. I don't believe anyone else made manifolds, exhaust or intake that fit this head other than the head manufacturer, Wayne.

Nope. The magnet just dropped the block of steel.

Damn the story on that smashed car really is ringing a bell but just not loud enough.

You got it!
Ford used the James Bond film Goldfinger to promote the new Mustang. The film was released in 1964 the same year as the Mustang. Interesting enough The 64 1/2 convertable that was used in the movie was not the car Ford wanted to use. The one they wanted was a specialy built fastback that they couldn't have done in time for the shooting. The fast back was tricked out with a Shelby engine, tricked out roof console for all the special weapons ,gold metalflacke paint, gold seats, perhaps one of the first shelby body-strengthing engine compartment struts and braces , special wheels and more. To bad it was never used.
What do you have Brian?
