This thread is about the new corvette, so you can imagine how we might make that mistake. The El Camino was a Ranchero copy. The 61 Mercury Comet was a Valiant copy. So what? You are very wrong about crankshafts though. Buick 350: 3.80 x 3.85; Olds 350: 4.057x 3.385; Pontiac 350 (355) 3.875 x 3.75, and the Ford 289: 4.00 x 2.87. That's just examining bore and stroke and not getting into centerline bore spacing, crank journal dimensions, and I digress.
I appreciate the newsflash on the GTO, but this is supposed to be about the Corvette.
