Default Re: EX IHRA Stocker What does my car fit at NHRA

68 car is very limited in Stock ,without spending a boatload of money to keep up.
As a SS/GT car, it doesn't need to be full tilt to run under the index.
69 full size 327, 1.250 2 bbl, 235 / 207 hp rating. GT/QA.
9" radials, stall it up good on the footbrake...Good to go... Half second under, no heads up runs
You're welcome..

The pistons in that engine should be the same for the 71-80 dished piston 350's. Buy some of the glamorous new dart castings allowed,sell the vortecs to recoupe, use your valves etc in them, good to go for a smog era motor, cheapest you'll get! lol The '71 350 2bbl is likely a good combo, 233hp with OE heads or 243 with replacement, the "big" 2 bbl carb, you'd fit in around GT/OA and have an 11.45 Index, at 3200 pounds with factory heads, 3330 with aftermarket. Go for it!

If you are from NW Iowa like it says under your name you can race it at most of the MCR combo races in your area. The only ones you can't I believe would be the ones that are also National Opens.

Would be a great 10.90 car and a lot cheaper to build/maintain. I see the Fletchers run the Nova in 10.90 lots, and then regular brackets etc. Just a thought.

I have been told I can race for at least the next two years with my Crate Motor with the Midwest Class Racers. I think that's what Im going to do and start collecting parts for a Legal NHRA combo.
