The 1951 Chevrolet engines and transmission were basically the same as 1950. Horsepower inched up from 90 to 92 in the standard shift engines. The 1951 Chevy engines still were without pressure lubrication and pistons were still made of cast iron. Competitive pressures would continue to grow for a larger engine. However, it would be a few more years before Chevrolet would develop the V-8. So just how well did the 2 6 cylinder engines perform? The answer was about the same as their predecessors going all the way back to 1937.
Not surprisingly, with so little change under the hood, there was equally, little change in performance on the road. The only thing good about the 1951 stove-bolt was the fact that it was very reliable. Including the 1951 Chevrolet Truck engines.
