From what I understand, and it's just hearsay from somewhere, possibly on here, that at the time Chevy was looking for a big block engine, they considered using the Packard V8. I'm sure some of our more knowledgeable members here would know more, but I remember someone somewhere mentioning that. For whatever reason, they didn't do it. Too bad they didn't, if they did it would have made parts availability a LOT better for the Packard V8. The 348 came out in 1958, so the timing's perfect since they would have had to have started looking and developing at least two years before.
