The year 1960 was an important one in auto manufacturing; it was the year all of the Big Three unveiled entrants in a new class of car called the compact. Chryslers offering, the Plymouth Valiant, was paired with its redesigned 6-cylinder engine entrant, the Slant Six, known by its nickname the leaning tower of power. This engine powered the Valiants when they swept the top seven positions in the newly christened compact race that precluded the Daytona 500. With its legacy intact, Chryslers Slant Six powered Mopar automobiles for decades to come in three displacement offerings (170, 198, 225).

Now 60 years old, your Slant Six could probably use some freshening up. Slant Six engine expert Doug Dutra has produced this volume to walk you through every aspect of disassembly, evaluation, rebuild, and reassembly in an easy-to-read, step-by-step format. The book also covers modifications, showing how to squeeze the most out of your engine.

With millions of Slant Six engines built over the 30-plus years that the engine was produced, its always a good idea to have this book handy, as you never know when the next leaning tower of power will find its way into your garage.
