Sorry, it did not line up right. Don't know if this was posted before or not.

Surprised ABS would not be standard across the board on this car.
Otherwise it all looks pretty usual.

The late 3.5 'Shortstar' is it.
What is Greek for 'W'? GM could have renamed it in Greek and called it "new", then the media would do back flips.
Someone missed C body when listing the GM codes, it was the Caddy DeVille/Park Ave/98.
Once, in 1959, GM used one body shell for all of their cars. Why? They moved up the restyle for the B body from 1960 a year, to battle Chrysler's "forward look". So, Chevy had the 1958 B body for a year only, instead of the planned 58-59.
Letters have been recycled. The mid size cars of 1964-72, which includes classic Muscle Cars, were A bodies, and the RWD 1962-79 Nova was also an X car.

Shortstar would've been a great engine back then if it only had VVT to improve its gas mileage.

Shortstar was a great engine.
I pulled 29 mpg on several long trips.
And I had the 3.29 gear not the 3.05 gear.
My city mileage was consistently 21-22.
My suburban mileage was 24-25mpg.
So, i was pretty happy with that especially in light of the car's acceleration.

I typically get 20+ in the city and 30-34 on the highway with my shortstar (with no VVT). As good as most cars with it.

Hmm, I guess it's how you drive it!
