Hers was not that fast. Actually it was a 1973.All 223 HP/355TQ. I had a few of the 68/70 T-birds with 360HP/480Tq. They hustled those cars around pretty well.
What made it such a burnout king was its weight and the 429s torque combined with non-posi rear end. Floor it and the car just stood there. Right Michelin would just disintegrate. Filling intersections full of smoke. Mom couldn't figure out why here tires didn't last.
