Thanks, didn't realize how much faster the old one really was. Wow, I wonder how the 392 would do?
You'd be hard pressed to find any times slips of a stock 426 E body that could even beat today's R/T Challengers. R/Ts can get down the 1/4 mile in about 13.3 with a good driver and that should run with or beat most vintage Mopars. I love the old Mopars but the new technology in our cars is far superior.
Buddy of mine old timer Glenn Solono owns a 70 AAR Cuda with 340 six pack. 60,000 org milesThat is one slow SRT8! On the other hand a stock 340 six pack 70 Challenger is a 14.1 second car. A stock Hemi E body is a low 13 second car.
Those cars are not stock. The driver of the Cuda is Bob Karakashian, who has been racing "stock" Mopars for a long time. He used to run a 69 1/2 Super Bee with the 440-6 and had it in the 12s. He knows the tricks to make them run and still call them stock, but they don't resemble true showroom stock.
