Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle 1959 CERV-1

 

 

In the late fifties, Ed Cole convinced GM to manufacture an all-aluminum engine and one of the very few that were correctly cast was tested in CERV I. This was cast in the exact same mold as the cast iron 283 and did not use any steel liners. The entire unit weighed only 350 lbs and could produce 300 bhp with moderate tuning. A modified version of GM's fuel injection was used which was normally hidden by the engine cover.
