classic muscle


1967 Chevelle Super Sport in Ermine White with a 396 big block and a factory Muncie 4-speed. There is an owner-added Hurst shifter. (His horsepower sticker on the breather is incorrect, only came in 325, 340 or 375, but I won’t fault him for that 😊). Look at the ignition switch at the top of the dash. Yes, the factory clock on the console still works. Would love to have this car as a daily driver!


1973 Pontiac Firebird Formula with a 455 cu/in power plant stuffed under the hood. Same car but two different car shows. You can barely see the twin hood scoops that mated to the air intake ducts on the air filter & breather. This car was a 3-speed automatic. Remember the factory “honeycomb” rims? What looks like striping on the sides is just a reflection of the parking lot lines.


Here’s a 1970 Super Sport Chevelle with a 396 / 375 cloaked in “Shadow Gray” GM factory paint. I was so doe-eyed over “ OMG!! Is this a REAL L-78?!?!?” that I forgot if it’s an automatic or a 4-speed!! Nor did I look at the carburetor. Obviously there’s an aftermarket manifold and someone else was using their cellphone flashlight looking at casting numbers on the engine block to verify yea or nay. For the sake of this summer weekend, let’s pretend it’s a valid 396/375 L-78 with a Muncie M-22 Rockcrusher. :-) Have a great weekend everyone!!!
