I've had the car for three months, I was told that the car was a street car for one year when new, with a 426 wedge and a 4 speed, and the 11,000 miles on the odometer support this, it was the allegedly an NHRA Super Stock car for the next 30 years and supposedly the 1968 Super Stock national champion, although I have not been able to verify this yet.

The car currently has a 440, with a 727 and 4:56 gears, it currently runs 13:20's but I think this is mainly do to tuning issues; the car has much more potential.
