C3 (68-82) Corvette Engine & Drivetrain

The C3 Corvette made quite an impact when it hit the market in 1968. While many cars of the era would look right at home in your grandparents’ driveway, the C3 Corvette seemed to be pulled straight from the pages of a science fiction comic book. The sweeping curves of this car were highly organic, which made “The Shark” an obvious nickname for this car.

There were several engine options available for the C3, but they all fell into two classes, the Big or the Small block. The big block engine, available in either 427 or 454 cubic inch flavors was offered until 1974. These fire breathing beasts were capable of delivering up to 450 horsepower straight from the factory, proving the old saying “there's no replacement for displacement”.

While the Big block was indeed powerful, most C3 Corvette engine parts will be of the small block variety. The small block Chevy engine is no less iconic than the car. This engine was the first design to achieve greater than one horsepower per cubic inch and is capable of generating phenomenal power when the right parts are added. This is likely the reason that nearly 90 million of these engines were old over the 43 year production run. With fuel injection, a hot cam and upgraded intake, this engine can easily deliver well over 400 horsepower.
