I also have Grotheer down as SS/BA winner.

Here is a pic of what I think is #983 Vanke's SS/B Race Hemi Cuda, twin Holleys on top, vs Bill Allie's #901 SS/DA glass hood Fairlane, also twin Holleys but probably 80hp less under the hood give or take a little. I think all the top Fairlanes has the Big F heads and Tunnel-Wedge intake by then, so up near 600hp anyway with 13.2 or so compression.

^^^THIS^^^^

Yeah, that's the only reason I opened the thread. I knew he'd later moved away from Pontiac. But, being a Pontiac Freek, when I see his name I automatically think of the Pontiacs he drove back in the early to mid '60's.

Yes youíre correct.

Vanke won SS/B

Grotheer SS/BA

Grotheer also won Top Stock over the Jerry Harvey Ford.

Any idea on the class runners up?

Here's what I have on 69 Winternationals - the usual caveats & comments welcome.
Note there's a LOT more factoring by now.
I have the 427 Fairlane 8v glass at 472FHP but I think I settled on 465FHP. Doesnt really matter, they end up in the same class.
