Chevrolet 194 Inline 6 Cylinder Engine

The Chevy 194 I6 engine was first produced in 1929 and was considered to be the first mass produced inline 6 cylinder that GM had ever made. It was used in the Chevrolet Pick-Up Truck and gained mass popularity because of its "work horse" type reputation. In 1935 and 1936 it was used in both GMC and Chevrolet light trucks. The 194 enjoyed much success over the years as it was phased out and brought back several times by GM. Even after GM had released the new Chevy 230 inline 6, the 194 was still popular enough to keep itself on the assembly line. In the 1962 Chevrolet used the engine in its Chevy II model as well as the Chevelle starting in 1964 and running up through 1967.
