It's clearly a V8.

(Redacted)

Edit: I was so focused on straight 6s, that I completely forgot about V6s.

Great old step van! What's wrong with the bumper?
The GMC V6 is huge for a 6 cly and are known for lots and lots of torque. The 305 was the smaller displacement GMC V6, they made them as big as 479 but the usual size was a 351. Smooth running. They made one block and just bored it bigger for larger sizes. Same weight less horse.
Commerical vehicle engines and stationary equipment were the main uses. If you can find an old GMC pickup with one in it it'll most likely still run, they were bullet proof low rpm engines.
They actually made a V12 that was two V6 blocks made together and displaced 702 CI...used in fire trucks and rat rods. lol
If it was a GMC v8 from that era it would be a collector item and would be somewhere north of 600 cu in in size.....

That is some serious GM knowledge Mr Catfish. That V12 sounds awesome. Size wise; how much larger is it than a 454 ? I would imagine that with a "bottomless wallet" ( No Gentleman's Club jokes Rusty )
you could install one in a G10 Shorty ! Would that even be possible. What a sight that would be to see.

Maybe one day when I win the POWERBALL I can Build one of those V12 motors and race frscke1 for pinks ! chevy

I worked at a Buick, Pontiac and GMC dealership in the late 60s and early 70's. The 351 V6 with a granny four speed was the farm truck of choice... laugh
