Just looking at that auction site we all know and love today, and I came across a 1957 265 block; in the add, it states CORVETTE (please don't tell me there actually were some 265, 1957 Corvette's made!), and one of only 147 made (???). WHERE do these people get these ideas from; are they ALL so totally mentally ill/stupid/crooked, that they really have NO idea what they're peddling? I was't having a very good day as it is, then I read something like this. AND, there's NO easy way to get in touch with E-Bay to tell them the kind of FRAUD they are allowing. I don't really feel any better now, but at least that's off my chest.

IIRC some of the real early 57 base passenger cars came with a 265 that was lime green and only with one kind of trans. A 3 on the tree?
Pretty much when I hear someone say they have a Corvette engine in a non-Vette I start to doubt it.
I have a 56 Vette with a 265. To think of all the
$$$ spent on the GREAT HP 57 283 Vette hoop la to see the factory put a Vette engine in a passenger car does not fly.
As to why do people say what they do probably best to ask them directly.

I have always said, if I ever had a Corvette, I'd put a "truck" motor in it. Instead of a 57 Chevrolet with a "Corvette" motor, I'd have an 82 Corvette, with a 63, 292 six in it; something to balance out the "law of conservation of energy", that states basically, "energy cannot be created nor destroyed, only changed from one form to another".
E=mc2; or something like that. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

Actually about 25-35 years ago there was a picture of a C2 with a straight six in it.
