I'd love to see how the claimed v. actual power and torque numbers from back then compare to now, using the same standard (RWHP dyno).

Now doubt the modern stuff is better and more powerful per cubic inch, but I'd still like to see real numbers for the Old Iron.
I don't care what the numbers are, nothing beats a good old American Muscle Car [smile]

I remember driving a 69 Z28 from Philly to Boston at 3 am and the only gauge I watched was the temperature gauge. I had to back off 7K RPM when going uphill as the temp climbed.

I was going to call shenanigans on the 7k number, but it said the factory redline was 7500....in a 1960's era carbureted V-8. Ho Lee Fuk

And at that RPM, you should have also watched the FUEL gauge!

Nope.... 1 tank 450 miles! I forget the capacity.

Plus, I rebuilt that engine that was only a year old, from blueprint to hand assembled. I even wore rubber gloves doing the final assembly. That engine would run 8K Rpm, but fell off on the torque curve after 7700.
