I've never heard of a 427 Nova, a 396 I've heard of. Umm, the 454 chevelle was obviously faster than the 427, and the Hemi cuda and the 440+6 cuda beats it.
The Cuda 440+6 goes 12.91, you haven't given anything to beat that. Or atleast no proof, give me a link for proof!

Had to resort to chevy I see, but thats OK cuz the 427 wasn't even put in the camaros by chevy anyway.
How about factory cars?

Where is your proof of these numbers?

The S/S stands for Super Stock, in 68' Mopar made Cudas and Darts with a HEMI. Is wasn't street legal cuz it came with slicks and plexiglass windshield. But hey all you needed to do was put in a windshield from a stock cuda, and a set of drag radials and it will still be it the 10's.

OK well 13.3 still doesn't beat the cuda. And the 427 Nova wasn't a factory chevy car. Yeah your done cuz you can't find proof. Maybe cuz it doesn't exist? LOL
I will admit if I am wrong, if you give me real proof.

And you were trying to tell me my sources were bad? You are saying go to musclecarclub and download videos, but they could have driver error like bad luanching or missed shifts etc.
My sources are legit testing that magazines did with pro drivers. Here's another link for you:
http://www.autofacts.ca/classics/fast.htm

What are you trying to prove with the GN? It's not as fast! 13.3 isn't as fast as 12.91 OK?

OK the first link is bogus- doesn't work

Whats the big deal with the third link? 360 HP oooo and 475 ft/lbs big deal.

And yes, the times are one driver, one car, one time. I would always say that numbers are a good approximation, but definitely not absolute.

Oh OK.
This link shows that is goes 12.76 in the 1/4 with the ZL1 427 right? Even though the ZL1 was all aluminum, it was an extreme advantage. But I will admit is was faster than all street legal mopars, except 1-

Take a look at the 63' Dodge Ramcharger. 12 flat, now thats a woopin.

OMG I said your link does not work, your so called proof. I saw the link of your car.

LOL, nothing of my own? Check out the 3 vehicles in my sig jackass
375 HP in an A-body is pretty fast, especially with a high stall converter, posi, and 3:91 gears it will eat your wildcat up and spit it out buddy
And with 150 less cubic inches too LOL
