And the sad thing is most people would believe the hp.
Example: I was at my shop one day. My son & his friends were outside the shop. I had the hood up on my 66 & one guy was looking at the engine. He asked my how much horsepower it had. I told him over 400 & he didn't bat an eye, totally believed me.

66 Coupe, 302, Auto, 3.25 gears. Candyapple Red with White Pearl Stripes. Cragars.
That was for the 'stang and the Chevy next to it, right???


'66 Springtime Yellow Coupe
289, slightly warmed over
driven daily
Reminds me of the time a coworker was over to see Delilah. The engine had gone through some dressup and was sporting new COBRA valve covers on the 289 HiPo. His comment was OHHHH, you didnt say it was a Cobra engine....I just had to laugh!!
