Most numbers in mags were put down by ringers. The truth is most of these cars ran 14's and 15's stock.

Re: Old time muscle 1/4 mile times

Amen brutha. If I had a nickel every time these old mags did a test and "all they added was slicks, a 4.56 gear and removed the air cleaner". And they're not even telling about the custom performance tune they did to it in the parking lot.

Re: Old time muscle 1/4 mile times

I had a 68 Charger R/T automatic (440/375hp 1 4bbl) that ran consistent mid 13.9's 101 mph w/4.11 rear, dumps and cheater slicks at New England Dragway. No other mods. Driven to and from the track.

Those cars had the crappiest tires in the world. The RT would easily take the great majority of them.

Re: Old time muscle 1/4 mile times

The good times posted weren't just the result of super tuning, but often also have a highly experienced driver. On the tires used back then, getting a good launch was crucial to turning a good ET. About 20 years ago, I did a super tune on a '68 Road Runner (383 4V, Torqueflite automatic, 3.23/1 Sure Grip axle). Before I tuned it, I drove it, just for the sake of driving an almost "new" '68 RR (the car had only 18,000 miles, and was completely original). After the tune, it was like an altogether different car, felt like it had a 440 instead of a 383. Changing the tires made a big difference also, in traction and handling. Overall, I prefer our modern performance cars over traditional musclecars, although I am partial to the old styling.

Re: Old time muscle 1/4 mile times

I'll bet a standard '06 RT with a low rear end, like a 4.11, would beat most of these times and speeds.

With the newer cars having 5 or 6 speeds the overall gear multiplication at launch is similar to the older cars 3 or 4 speeds with 391 or 411's. Not saying that a lower gear for our new cars wouldn't help out! We have much better tires and with computer's our cars maintain almost perfect tune all the time. The old muscle cars could be a bear to keep tuned.
