Pictorial – Engines, Engines at the Rod Show!
Rod and Custom Shows are always the best place to see some of the most spectacular engines. Most of them are highly modified, but there are still some original engines that are becoming rarer by the day. These shots were taken at the 43rd Salon de l’Auto Sport in Quebec City in April.
- How about that? Injectors sitting on top of a carburetor on a small block Chevy engine!
- What would a Rod Show be without a classic Ford Flathead engine?
- The oh-so popular 5.0 Ford V8 with a blower.
- We’ve then seen it all! A big block (huge block?) 621 cubic inch GM V-8 in a Volvo 640!
- A classic: a big block Chevy engine in a Canadian Beaumont!
- Another classic, a small-block Chevy V8 in a 32 Ford!
- A finely detailed late model Ford V8 in a Mustang
- This 1967 Chrysler Slant 6 engine was completely rebuilt by a Rimouski school
- Another classic, a Chrysler 340 V8 with the original six-pack triple twin-barrel carburetor set-up
- A nice example of a small-bock Ford V8 (289) in a replica Ford GT 40
- This big block 502 cubic inch Chevy V8 looks pretty small in this 1955 Chevy engine compartment
- The sixties Mantaray show car sits on an old fifties Maserati Formula One car. The original engine was scrapped in favour of this era correct Cobra V8. Which engine would be worth more today?
- Modern, yet now traditional Mugen race parts in a Honda
- Nice detailed work on a modern Subaru engine
- This International 549 gas engine was an option in some heavy duty Fargo trucks.
