Buddy of mine has a '69 Chevelle, also a 540" BBC, and it runs exactly .1 slower than my lowly small block Ford. Gets under his skin too. What's a chevelle weigh? They heavy or?

Heavy lead sleds. About 3600 lbs from the factory. If you are at 3000 lbs you need 20% less power to tie.

As long as you get traction, it's all about weight to horsepower ratio.

I have a '69 SS396 all original 4 speed car. Weighs about 3550. Not a fast as my fox but rides way better. Neither of which are " race cars" by any means. Just cruisers
