I saw this truck at a local event this weekend. The owner said it was a 1929 1/2 ton that had last been registered in 1956. It was bone stock, he said it had the 216 and 3 speed yet. The hood wasn't open so no engine pictures.

If memory serves, the 216 was first used in 1937 model trucks.

I'm not a history major with the inline 6 (but I am learning). I asked if I could look at the engine but the owner didn't seem inclined to open the hood. Might be He didn't know that much either. grin

From my stove bolt history notes:
1929 was the year General Motors introduced their new inline 194 cubic-inch (50 hp) ‘Over Head Valve’ six-cylinder in the Chevrolet and GMC trucks. The new six cost only ten dollars more than the 1928 four cylinder. GM marketed their new engines as giving Chevy owners “a six for the price of a four”. The new engine used an ‘Over Head Valve’ (OHV) layout, conceived by inventor and founder of Buick Motors, David Dunbar Buick, but patented in 1928 by Arthur Chevrolet. The 216 cubic-inch six-cylinder engine was introduced in 1937.

GMC did not use Chevrolet motors in any of their US built light duty trucks built back then, they used Pontiac and Buick until they started making their own engines.

Here are several pages of stovebolt-6 engine (Chevrolet, of course) information/specs.

If anyone finds any mistakes, or any omissions, please let me know.

I don't think Arthur Chevrolet could have patented the OHV engine in 1928. It had already been in use by, many manufacturers, for almost 20 years by then. Arthur Chevrolet never had any connection to Chevrolet Motor Company or General Motors.

The truck in the photos, above, is a 1933. The grille shell is a painted version of the 1932 passenger grille, which was plated. If someone can enlarge the Id plate enough, you will find the letters CB as part of the number.

You may be correct Mike that it is a 1933. The 1933 headlight bar is arched from side to side and the 1929 headlight bar is straight in the middle.

Arthur Chevrolet indeed held a patent for an overhead valve engine. Applied for on 3-1-1928, granted on 1-21-1930.

According to Wikipedia Buick was the first OHV production engine in the world in the year 1904. Maybe Chevrolet got a patent on the most ill conceived head design ever.
