I love the second gear chirp. It gets her a little extra jump.
Neat video but not surprised by that outcome
I wonder how the Chevelle would do with a th350? jim
And the L79.
If the Chevelle had an L79 327 instead of the 300hp engine, the outcome would have been different. Many years ago, one of the car magazines did a road test of the Corvettes with the availalble 327 engines. They ran a hydraulic lifter L79 350hp, a solid lifter 365hp version, and a 375 fuel injected one. The two solid lifter engines, (365 and 375) revved higher, but couldn't catch up in a quarter mile to the milder L79 327. If they would have run a half mile, the higher revving engines could have caught up using their superior top end, but in a quarter mile they came up short.
This Chevelle with 300hp 327 would be a better match for the SS350 with the same basic 300hp engine in 350 cubes.
Also, the Z28 could have done a bit better with a 4 speed. The 1970 road tests commonly timed the 4 speed Z28 in the high 13 second range.
My new 1970 Z/28 had a turbo 400 with 4:10 gears ran 14.10 bone stock 2 weeks after I got it. I still have the time slips somewhere.
Wow that car is a twin to the car I'm selling. Except mine has black interior. Very cool video.
