Bryan,
Actually I am probrably wrong about 69, I think they were still using the 283s, but when they changed body styles from the old box Nova's, the 307 was the base V8. It was the corporate long stroke(I think it was a 283bore with a 327stroke crank), low perf 2bbl Chevy motor that they stuck in everything. They had potential but out of the box it was grandma's small block (like Chryslers 318).

This is wot I like about this board! throw this samee question to your regular H&A bbs and no one will answer. Prolly get flamed for even mentioning the word Blazer and '69 together.

NE how I think it's a 350ci. A friend of mine just got it. Some guy sold it to him. He needed a truck to haul his drums around. I just want to help him lookout if he got suckered. He bought it for 5500CDN. It's a 1989 blazer.

The 307 replaced the 327 in early 69 for most models. Your friend probably got a 2bbl, somewhere around 200hp chuffer emissions motor. These were the base model V8 motors available in 69. Take off all smog and get a decent cam with a hot coil...it should do just fine for hauling!

Unhappy What's a '69 NOVA...?

Yeah what does that mean to have that engine in an 89 Blazer truck?

does not mean much.. it could have a straight six all the way up to big block... just about every engine that could be had at Chevrolet could have been put into a 69 NOVA...

All depends on if it's one of the 6 cyl (230 ci or 250ci) or the 283Ci and the 327ci V8s.

350ci and the 396ci were introduced for that year. Also, that was the year that it was no longer named the Chevy II, and was known as the Nova.

So if someone said there was an 89 Blazer with a 69 Chevy Nove Motor, you have 6 different engines to chose from.

A more direct answer to your question of: "What does it mean to have that engine in an 89 Blazer Truck?"

I would have to say....terrible gas milage, maybe 10 to the gallon?

A Nova was a compact body chevy. The Impala/Biscayne/Caprice was the full size, the Chevelle was a midsize and the Nova was the compact.
It was about the size of a plymouth Duster(3000lbs). It was considered a cheaper car because of the unit body construction. They came with a lot of differrent engines the most common were the stovebolt (straight) six and the 307cid V8. They were good, if unremarkable, cars (like a Duster or a Dart or a Ford Falcon).

It's not worth it at all. All of those engines were greatly improved upon over the years and you can find better versions today, new or used. You'd be better off and you'll save money in the long run by putting a slightly used or new V8 in there, or even a turbo or supercharger on the stock engine. What Blazer are you talking about here? The S10 Blazer or the full-size sucker? What engine's in it now, V6 or V8? Is this for street driving or off-roading?

Oh, I didn't realize you could get the 307 in the Nova. I thought the 327 was the smallest V8 you could get in it. I've never heard of the 307 in anything other than a Chevelle.
