OK, OK, OK. All I know is that when I was a teen in the `60's, needing a pickup to pull a horse trailer, all the ones I could afford, from the `50's, had sixes in `em. A quick googling pointed to the `59 as first V6 GM pickups.
Those straight sixes made about 50 horsepower but had plenty of torque for pulling a two-horse trailer.
