59Tom said:I hope this isn't too big. Pun intented. The Falconer was a V12 big block used in aircraft. I'm told they made a V12 small block too. It may have been installed in a ZR1. I dodn't remember.
The Small Block Chevrolet V8s
Want something different? How about one of Ryan Falconer's aluminum V12s? Weighing in at just 523 pounds, they're based on small block Chevy parts. Falconer still sells them, mostly to boat racers. You can get them in sizes from 300 to 641 cubic inches. Cost? Bring a Styrofoam cooler full of money...
Chevrolet, for no reason I could figure, actually built a prototype C4 Corvette with one of these. It's in the museum in Bowling Green. They stretched the chassis about six inches, it looks like, and extended the hood by the same amount. If it's not on display it's probably in the back; they rotate the cars from the back to the front from time to time.
