My new to me 235 has this oil filter. It looks like an owner installed option. Am I correct or is this stock?
Thanks in advance for your response.πŸ‘

The oil filters on those 6 cyl. engines were dealer installed or after market. That one is a Fram so it was more than likely after market. The dealer installed AC filters.

They came in various colours over the years, like engines. New decals are available as well.

Thanks again. My 46 11/2 ton is my first 40’s chev project so the wealth of info here is greatly appreciated. I’ve have to figure out a good system to catalog the info as I acquire it.
Looks like this oil filter could be a S-6 as it is on a 1961 engine.πŸ‘πŸ˜

Sir Searchalot
Regarding things like oil filters. They were offered by the dealer or purchased/installed by the owner. This type of item is not referred to as "original" it's referred to as "era correct"......correct style.
The excellent Tech Tip info begins in 1933. AC Spark Plug Company had an oil filter patent filed 1927, granted 1930.


From the web:

First U.S. oil Filter for commercial use in automobiles was Purolater (Pure Oil Later). Invented 1923. Granted 1929.
In 1924 first full pressure lubrication system, with an oil filter, became available on a high volume production engine.

The early oil filters used on cars were low performance and not really effective.

Many successful and popular engine designs (VW, FIAT) did not use any oil filters until 1970's.

Some engines used oil filters ONLY in "by-pass" and not in main flow of pressurized oil.

The first use of a full flow oil filter on mass production vehicles occurred in 1946.

Factory "can be" black with white lettering.
The AC orange and blue "can be" dealer installed or OTC.
