The Holden Grey motor is often referred to as the Holden side plate. The engine earned its name as they were painted grey from the factory. They came in 2 sizes, 138ci and 132ci.
More engineering and after market modifications have gone into this engine than any other engine in Australian automotive history.

Grey Motor Canadian Blcok
Do they exist is it a myth. Most people claim early engine numbers are Candian blocks this is not true but we still hear the old story of "My mate had a Candian block".
In any case here are 2 very old clippings from way back claiming to have Canadian blocks for sale. To this day no one has been able to prove or show a picture of a Candian block.
