“THE 1970 DODGE CHALLENGER R/T 440 SIX PACK WAS ONE OF THE BADDEST PONY MUSCLE CARS EVER AND COULD GIVE THE HEMI VERSION A RUN FOR ITS MONEY. Featuring an aluminum Edelbrock manifold topped by a trio of Holley 2300 series carburetors, the Six Pack ran on only the center 350 cfm Holley during everyday, but mash the throttle down and the pair of 500 cfm Holleys at the front and back kicked into action and all of that proverbial hell broke loose. The idea behind the engine program was to create an engine significantly less expensive and more streetable than the Hemi, but with nearly the same performance.

The Z/28 option code was introduced in December 1966 for the 1967 model year. It was the brainchild of Vince Piggins, who conceived offering "virtually race-ready" Camaros for sale from any Chevrolet dealer. This option package was not mentioned in any sales literature, so it was unknown to most buyers. The Z/28 option required front disc power brakes and a Muncie 4-speed manual close-ratio transmission (posi-traction was optional). It featured a 302 cu in (4.9 L) V-8, an aluminum intake manifold, and a 4-barrel vacuum secondary Holley carburetor of 780 cfm. The engine was designed specifically to race in the Trans Am series (which required engines smaller than 305 cu in (5.0 L)). Advertised power of this engine was listed at 290 hp This is an under-rated figure. Chevrolet wanted to keep the horsepower rating at less than 1 hp per cubic inch, for various reasons (e.g. insurance and racing classes). The factory rating of 290 hp occurred at 5300 rpm, while actual peak for the high-revving 302 was closer to 360 hp (268 kW) (with the single four barrel carb) and 400 hp (298 kW) (with optional dual-four barrel carbs) at 6800-7000 rpm. The Z/28 also came with upgraded suspension, racing stripes on the hood and trunk lid, '302' front fender emblems on the 67 and early 68 cars, and 'Z/28' emblems in late 68 & 69. It was also possible to combine the Z/28 package with the RS package.

Only 602 Z/28s were sold in 1967, along with approximately 100 Indianapolis Pace Car replicas.

1969 Ford Fairlane Cobra... The Fairlane Cobra was a '69-only high-performance intermediate with one basic engine choice, the 335hp 428 Cobra Jet FE-series big-block. The 428 Cobra Jet made these hardtops and fastbacks tire-burning hotshots right off of the assembly line.
The Fairlane Cobra was all business, with a simple approach to the business of performance. It was a dressed-down ride with a taxicab interior, column shifter, horizontal-sweep speedometer, minimal instrumentation, and a lot of power. The 428 Cobra Jet engine had 735-cfm Holley carburetion. Ford didn’t keep production records of how many Cobras & Super Cobras were produced.

The 1st Corvette was built 06/30/1953... The first Corvette (serial number E53F001001) reached the end of the assembly line on June 30, 1953. All 300 cars would go on to be built by hand in the back of a customer delivery garage in Flint, Michigan. Because nobody had ever mass-produced a fiberglass car prior to the Corvette, the process of assembling these first cars was performed largely by trial and error. The first two cars were engineering test cars and, according to official records, were later destroyed. Despite the engineering capacity of the facilities available to the Corvette manufacturing team, the initial target of just 50 cars a month As a result, all 1953 Corvettes were painted Polo White and had Sportsman Red interiors (like the concept car before them), with black tops, 6.70 x 15 four ply whitewall tires, Delco signal-seeking radios, a standard array of analog instruments which included a 5000-rpm tachometer .

1973 Corvette.... The changes to the 1973 Corvette, especially when compared to the earlier C3 models, was obvious. For 1973, the Corvette received a new nose treatment on both the coupe and convertible models. The nose was longer (by about two inches), slightly heavier (by about thirty-five pounds), and featured a steel bumper that was covered by deformable urethane plastic that was matched to the body color of the rest of the car.
Although this new nose was the first major appearance change since the introduction of the C3 in 1968, the design was more than just a cosmetic enhancement. To the contrary, the new nose was one of the first examples in engineering design where the styling was dictated by function.
1973 Corvette Stingray
The 1973 Corvette front fenders featured a simpler, recessed air vent design.
The rest of the front end saw other modifications to their earlier design as well. The 1973 Corvette front fender molds were made to incorporate a simple, recessed air vent design on each side of the car in lieu of the separate cast vent grilles that had been seen on the 1970–1972 models. Just over 30,000 units were produced. With 3 engine choices 2 different 350 Cu.in and the 454cu.in

1971 Shriners Barracuda.. 1 of 3 specially ordered. Originally the order was for five cars, but only three were ever built. What makes these cars special is the paint color, which was not offered in the Barracuda range. The Shriners ordered five identical 1971 Barracuda Convertibles to use as parade vehicles for their 1971 Children’s Hospitals Parade. Unfortunately, only three cars were delivered to the dealership, so the order was canceled. The cars then sat around at the dealership until private buyers could be found. The paint color, which is Duron Butterscotch.
