    I love how they don't quote power figures. :rofl: Today they quote their power whenever they can. They even tag it on the fenders.

    And a 305 w/ 2.41 gears. :bowrofl:

    :mamoru::mamoru:

    I think the HP ratings were:
    85
    100
    110
    130
    150

    Accordingly. And 2.41 gears + 3-speed auto was around 1600 RPM @ 60 mph. :o Gotta make em fuel efficient. :rofl:

    It would be great for a highway cruiser. But it would SUCK around town.

    As oil manufacturing technologies increased, the oil companies worked with the auto manufacturers to reduce the amount of miles between oil changes by some 300%.

    I know plenty of mechanics that state dd's with low rpm engines can run 5k miles+ between oil changes without blinking an eye.
