  1. The NHRA knew that advertised HP was just for the insurance companies, so they came up with a more accurate chart. The NHRA was weight divided by HP. The AHRA went even deeper - called "Formulas", they factored in cam, lifters, two or four bbl, upholstery; all kinds of arcane sub-divisions. "Stock" was more-or-less based on what was offered in the showroom. No trips to the parts counter, no aftermarket goodies. That would have (should have) put you into the wild and wooly Modified Production class. "Stock" more often than not was a matter of opinion.
  2. Terrific build, Tim. And you correctly have fenders on all four corners (which the class required - Gassers, too).
  3. The "4 carb manifold" for the Caddy: I can't tell. Is that a Man-A-Fre manifold?
  4. I have the Ram Rod version still in the box down in the basement. Got it many many moons ago. IIRC the slicks were kinda mashed. Taken from the mold a bit too soon maybe?
  5. Thanks for the model, the write-up, and the tip about the SGA.
  6. Now take a pic of each and every one of those beauties ...
  7. As per the rule book, the wheelbase had a minimum length of 100" (at least through 1969). No mention of maximum.
  8. Thanks for noticing that. I'll need to search for it.
  9. Can't post a picture. Checked the contents carefully this time. Decals say 392 Hemi. Instructions say 354 Cadillac. My error. And those sure ain't Hemi valve covers. Looks a lot like below. I'd say it's the Caddy, Rats.
  10. Supercharged 427 Ford, 354 Hemi with four or six carbs. Nothing chromed.
