I run 9.50 at 145 mph, original body, glass, dash, head liner, and door panels. The rest has been modified a little.

Hey, Good to see ya Mike. Keep me posted on the new Dart M. How's it coming along? Did you get the fab-9 in yet? Do you have a cage with that bench seat? If it's not caged, I'd like to see the look on the track manager's face after your first pass.

Later, Daryl

Hey Daryl,yeah just plugging along.The Fab-9 is in, motor is in.It's been a heck of month, thrashing every spare minute.I was planning on firing it up today but discovered a leak in my radiator when I was filling it.So off to the rad. shop to fix it.Hopefully they can other wise $200.00 for a recore or $300.00+ for an aluminum that probably won't fit right.I'll keep you posted.

Best time of 13.83. Other than a .030 overbore, a mild cam, and a pertronix ignition, it is stock.

Thanks Grease, fortunately for me the old valve stem, and seals are in fine condition; you know how hard it would be to find parts for a 1958 Lloyd, well we won’t go there. I just hope I do not pass out doing the leak down. A re-ring job may be out of the question, as the old cylinders have quite a few miles on them.

Best of 11.80 at 114.12 in the 400 turbo car.
The 4 speed car went 12.79 through the mufflers on hoosier quick times. The 71 SS went 13.87 at 99+ rolling in of the street. The Corvette went 14.42 bone stock taking it fairly easy.

With a stock ZZ502, 4030 lb with driver race weight, M/T ET streets, my 72 ran the times below. Oh yeah, I later found out that the timing was retarded 2 degrees from what GM recommends. It was set at 10 degrees BTDC(GM recommends 12 degrees) and now it is set at 14 degrees.

60' = 1.750
1/8 = 7.75 @ 89.04
1/4 = 12.20 @ 109.84
air temp = 85 and humid
weight = 4030 with jack, spare, and 3/4 tank of fuel (I have to run over half tank of fuel because tank is not sumped yet).


I believe this car will run flat 12's to high 11's at 111-112 mph with the timing at 14 (where it is now), cooler air, and if I remove the spare tire, jack, and run less fuel. The time mentioned above was the 2nd pass I made since the 355 to 502 conversion.
