Oh the quality of the era. Already a malfunctioning right brake light.

Beautiful car, but for the money I could buy a Hellcat and have enough left over to buy a house.

5:14 “It handles well in the corners.”

It has really lousy cornering by today’s standards and looks as if it’s going to flip over if driven any faster. No wonder people only ever use them for straight line drags.

That body roll also makes it look as if the chassis has a will of its own.

However one must remember what era this car was designed in. The public wanted a big, powerful engine and gas was cheap. Developing chassis that could cope with that kind of power wasn’t really needed and would have driven prices up. Safety? Ha! Cars were dangerous and that was generally accepted. In 1969 twice as many people died in car accidents than soldiers serving in Vietnam.

75 HP in 5 minutes is pretty damn good. If your tires screech while braking it’s because you are locking them up. You’re doing it wrong. You can learn to threshold brake without needing abs. My car started with 500 HP, I can quickly and easily get to 750 without a full tear down. No need to touch the internal, plus still get 20 mpg. My Chevelle got about 10 mpg with only 300 HP. Shitty brakes, cornered like a boat. If your battery drains, you’ve got other issues.
