Yes the pictures from the 1970 Hot Rod Magazine show the mock up clutch can as the car was just built at the time and wasn't finished and in race condition.
As you can see in my last pictures S & M did obviously try dual plug heads already in 1970 but I think it was late in the year, because those pictures are from Cars Magazine December 1970 and the car is one of their 70 'Cuda's...but of course the pictures can have been taken anytime during 1970 as the magazines save material to do articles over the whole year.
They did run dual plug heads in the 71 'Cuda but the distributors were a different setup as they used dual magnetos in that car.
Yeah, that's right, 71 was a magneto set up. Other teams ran dual distributors in 70, here's Don Grotheer at York Pa in May. I recall seeing a Sox and Martin picture from that same race that shows singles. I may have posted it already in this thread.
If the photos for the Cars Magazine article were all taken at the same time it would be early because it still has the un-cut six pack scoop.
Thanks for posting those, BTW. You Scandinavians really love your Pro/Super Stocks, don't you!
