Bill Jenkins attended college at Cornell University, where he studied mechanical engineering and by his own admission, he wasn’t much of a student, and dropped out after completing three years of his four-year program. Though Jenkins may have lacked an aptitude for taking tests, it was clear that he’d learned quite a bit during his time at Cornell. When the small-block Chevy V-8 debuted in 1955, it didn’t take Jenkins long to realize that the engine had serious potential for drag racing, and by the early 1960s, he’d developed something of a cult following among East Coast racers, who knew that a Jenkins-built engine significantly increased one’s odds of winning races.
