Watch Davin explain the Stovebolt Six Redline Rebuild

The latest Redline Rebuild has been one of our most popular builds yet. The Stovebolt inline-six yanked from a derelict 1950 Chevrolet 3600 roared to life before Davin pulled it, but it still deserved a rebuild. The whole process was captured in a time lapse seen by millions, but behind the scenes there was a lot going on. Davin and Ben sat down to talk through the process and interesting points, and their debrief is worth the watch.

You mention needing transmission work for this truck. Can you film that?

@grpphoto - That is currently in the works and we rarely turn the cameras off in that garage! Be sure to subscribe to Hagerty’s Youtube page and watch for a notification in the next few weeks.

That point about keeping the six as opposed to putting in a small-block V8 is a good one. I have a '61 Econoline and you should see people’s eyes light up when I tell them it still has an inline six.
