      Reminds me of the Richard Petty Roadrunner prototype with the Spehar tuned hemi with a racer brown solid cam and Vanke modified intake I read about a long time ago. A balls to the wall thrill ride that didn't start really pulling until it reached the speed limit and running a base model 120 mile an hour speedometer out on the end peg and bouncing the needle before running out of third gear. If that's not Kowalski approved, I don't know what is!

        Performance was dead by 1974. We were entering the disco malaise era. Dodge was still trying to get buyers to buy 4 speeds and A bodies, going for the "rallye" angle. The call wasnt for performance anymore. I mean talking about wide ratio 4 speed and 2.94 gears, and if you understood that, you were their customer. WTF That shit is funny right there. Real corn, but if it sold cars and made em money, oh well whatever sells. But in retrospect, 74 was the first gas crunch so the ad was really a sign of the times.

            That's exactly what my car looks like. Except I have the sun roof and Raisin Bran hood.

              The fine print on that one shoulda read, if you remove the 200lbs of shit hidden behind each bumper, your ET will improve and so will your gas mileage lol.

                318 with special ratio hurst operated 4 speed. That was the last of the 3.09 first gear strait 4 speeds and the only other time it was used since the 64/65 A bodys.
