  • What nickname did Buick have for it's straight eight engine of the 1940s and 1950s?
  • What decade in automotive history saw the largest leap in rated horsepower within a single brand?
  • What was the first model year for the Chevrolet Biscayne and the last model year for the Bel Air?
  • What is going on with the Thunderbird in this pic?

#1 Crosley, Just read a book on this about 2 months ago.

 

#2 Fireball 8

#3 I know you are thinking of something else but the  Twin six 702 V12 GMC was the largest road gas engine GM offered but it was 1960-65 I believe. Not sure what you are looking for. The 455 SD Pontiac did not arrive till June 73.

 

#4 As a percentage I would guess Olds from 5 HP in 1901 to 60 HP  in 1910. It could be a number of models back then as they all had nothing for power to start and grew at a fast rate. I picked Olds as this was a GM based web site.

 

#5 1958 Biscayne first year Last year Bel Air was 75 in the states but I have seen later ones sold in Canada. We used to see them here in Ohio once in a while in the  late 70's and early 80's

 

#6 1955 Turbine powered Thunderbird. Raised hood intake and large exhaust looks like a Turbine engine.

#3 Fireball 8

 

#4 As a percentage I would guess Olds from 5 HP in 1901 to 60 HP in 1910. It could be a number of models back then as they all had nothing for power to start and grew at a fast rate as a percentage. I picked Olds as this was a GM based web site.
