With names like Rogue, Rebel and Marlin you have to imagine some monster power plants moving these hunks of steels across the face of the earth. So where they? Here is the line up.
The body styles ranged from stately station wagons to slick fastbacks. Some of the names are iconic like Rebel SST and Marlin.
Both nice cars and you could get them with the following engines.
First up was the Inline (straight) Six. This engine was has a cast iron block and overhead valuve. Displacement was 199 cid with a bore and stroke of 3 3/4 “x 3″. The compression ratio was 8.5:1 and producing 128 hp. It sported seven main bearings and topped with one of two single barrels carbs a Cater Type RBS or a Holley Model 1931C-3705.
From there you could graduate to the next level Inline Six. This one mirrored but with 232 cid displacement and a bore and stroke of 3.75″ x 3.50”. Compression ratio stayed the same and so did the carb options. However it did manage to squeeze out 145 hp.
Now you could get both of these in the other models, including the wagons, but the engine you wanted in your Rebel or Marlin was the V8.
This was an overhead valve cast iron block engine. It displayed 287.2 cid and have a bore and stroke of 3.75″ x 3.25″ and had a compression of 8.7:1. Five main bearings and hydraulic lifters topped with either two barrel Carter WCD or Holley.
