But why do Ford Hot Rods have Chevrolet Engines? Do they want to become muscle cars?
Chevrolet engines are quite possibly the most popular engines used in hot rods today. This is not surprising, considering the vast selection of aftermarket parts and the fact that Chevrolet engine components are almost always cheaper compared to other manufacturers. A hot rod’s performance primarily depends on two variables: power and weight. If the vehicle’s weight is constant but the power is increased, the vehicle will be faster. Similarly, if the engine’s power is unchanged but the vehicle’s weight is reduced, the vehicle will also be faster. A Chevy hot rod engine can be built to both increase the amount of power and reduce the vehicle’s weight.
