Chevrolet set a new standard with the Introduction of a new 5 cylinder overhead valve engine in 1929. The engine increased the carrying capacity, power and torque.
The term "Stovebolt" is a historic moniker applied to the famed Chevrolet L-6 overhead valve engines first produced by Chevrolet in 1929 and manufactured until 1962. Other Chevrolet and Maple Leaf trucks in our collection are actually "Stovebolts" as well. This is one of the first produced.
Advertising of the day promoted the new engine as "a six for the price of four"
