Oh I know that.. I'm building a 78 Cougar (same car but a Merc). But still, 14.5? He says it like it's fast.. I msg'd him, I'm awaiting a reply.

Got a reply.

"No drivetrain pics, however drivetrain looks like it was done at the factory, no
Mickey Mouse! No headers, 429 CJ exhaust manifolds - much better! Cam lift .527
Duration 268 advertised. ONLY 14.5 is because the car ONLY weighs 4960# on the
scale at NED!
"
That explains it.

Well.....in high school I had a '75 Elite for a cruiser. 351 Cleveland with '70 model closed chamber heads, Torker, Crane cam, 800 Holley, headers, C4, 3.90 gears. Fun cruiser that scared the crap out of a lot of faster cars. The problem? 4250 lbs. with a quarter tank of fuel and me in the car. It would run 13.30's but the mph would shock everyone: 112 mph. :lol:
