Rat rods are a throw back to the days when many of us could not manage to possess a very nice vehicle, so rather than spending money on the looks, the drive teach (motor, tranie, rear end) received the attention. I think probably wistfulness could be the driving power behind the old vehicle craze.


As the Chrysler Hemi produced tons of energy, it absolutely was also actually greater and heavier than other V-8s. The enormous engine easily earned the soubriquet of Elephant motor due to its size. An elephant engine with a GMC supercharger appeared enormous when mounted in the typical pipe body sling-shot dragster chassis.


Even though huge elephants became the de-facto normal in Prime Gasoline, there was another engine that may maintain its against the Hemi. Many clubs took an alternative strategy, picking the famous small-block Chevy to power their dragsters. As often as perhaps not, they did not bother with a supercharger, preferring a simple group of injectors.


The small Chevies could burn up their wheels as properly, but their decrease energy permitted the tires to attach and obtain traction as the big hemis were however rotating their wheels. The combination less wheelspin, light overall fat and higher RPMs permitted the little Chevy powered cars to offer the elephant motor cars a run for their money.


The mouse-motor's role as elephant-killer maybe not last long. Tire and clutch technology continued to improve, and the huge elephants were ultimately ready to supply more power to the track. By the first sixties, the mouse generator can no more trouble the major Chryslers in the Prime Eliminator ranks. The small stop Chevy was however very common in the altered, gas coupe and revised classes. Although it seldom went against the huge elephant motors any longer, the the old rat was still called the mouse motor.


Story has it that during the early sixties, specific Chevy racers arrived at numerous competition paths with an odd new engine underneath the hood. It was not a mouse motor, and it wasn't the major 409 V-8 that the Seaside Boys immortalized in song. It was a mysterious, brand new Chevy V-8.The mystery only lasted some time, as Chevrolet announced a brand new large stop V8 in 1965. Accessible first as a 396 cubic inch version, the motor eventually evolved to displacements of 402, 427, 454 CI. GM even offered a beast 572 CI version of the engine.


Following the engine was introduced, many people still extended to refer to it since the puzzle engine. Once the valve addresses were eliminated, warm rodders started contacting it the porcupine V8, since unlike the mouse motor which had the valve stalks prearranged in a neat line, the valves in the newest engine were canted at different angles.
