I learned to drive in a herd of 60's Chevys with the 250 and 3 speed. I think it was 63, 65, and 67 pickups and a 66 El Camino. And a couple of extra engines... When one started getting wore out just limp it to the big tree down by the creek with the chain hoist in it and swap the best engine in. We could get it done in about a half hour.
Great engines, can take a beating.
