3 1/2 engines vs. 3.4 engines

(PhilW) #1

In the '50’s the engines were 3.44 litre and had 3 1/2 cast into the side of the block. in the '60’s (and 70’s) the displacement was the same and they were called 3.4 engines. Did the blocks still carry the 3 1/2 on the side of the block or did they cast in 3.4 similar to the 3.8 on the early E’s or 4.2 on the later ones?

Just curious.
