Man that 455 would smoke the tires and most of the competition! I would have loved to have had the opportunity to drag race you in my 69 Mustang.
you would beat me off the line most likely...that Delta 88 weighed a ton, but that 455 would get going and BOOM!!!! My grandma hahd a 67 Mustang with - I think with a 289 V8 in it? ( I don't know much about Ford engines, having been an Olds guy). My dad and I took both cars put one time and did one or two runs, and that is what happened. My grandma would have killed us if she knew that is what we were doing....abad grandpa would have burned the chopped up remains!! They thought we were "doing senior pictures"
