Well 1965 was the first year for a spin-on filter. Nova only. The rest of the Chevy line in 1968. The clutch fork was in a different position in the bell housing. It was lower.

Nope, the starter was mounted up higher into the block about a half inch just as the oil filter on the other side.

Being you answered first and no one got all of them (which I wasn't asking originally anyway) it's your floor BB.

Ok how about this.

It's been noted that there are a few " concept car" lovers that peruse this site so lets test them.

This is a concept car/ prototype made by a major us car manufacturer. The year was 1925.

Who made it and what was it's name.

Hint : They were worried about losing sales to the Austin.

I don't know much about the pre-war proto types but I will throw a wild guess out there, the 1925 GM Mosquito?


Brian

I admit, I googled it.

Wild guess huh?
Yes it is a 1925 GM Mosquito. The only one. GM was worried when Austin of England set up shop in America. They didn't follow through with it.

Go for it Brian.

Who exchanged a number of messages today with Richard Earl, the grandson of Harley Earl the designer of the 53 Corvette? That's Richard Earl, the son of Jerry Earl, the guy who his dad Harley had the GM design studio make him this car! What's it's name for bonus points.
