1952 Classic Chevrolet - "Two Six Cylinder Engines"

Sponsored Links

Chevrolet was no performance car in 1952, and wouldn't be until the Chevrolet V-8 was introduced in 1955. The two 1952 Chevrolet engines and transmissions were basically the same as 1950 and 1951 cars.

The two engines were a trend setting valve in head power plants that were not rated for performance but for economy.

The choice of the two transmission was based upon what a customer wanted. If a customer likes to do more driving than just step on the throttle and brake, the powerglide had the advantage. For the person that did not mind shifting, the standard transmission was better.

"Enjoy smoother centerpoise power - Engine rides flexibly suspended, centered, poised, cushioned in rubber. Vibration is screened out power is smoothed out!" Described 1952 Chevy car engine advertising.

"Enjoy smoother, simpler Powerglide - Only automatic transmission in its field that is oil-smooth and oil-cooled, with fewer parts to require service." Described 1952 Chevrolet car powerglide transmission advertising.
