I've got the scoop on a 70 Super Bee 440 6pak from an old Popular Hotrodding mag.

Hit the rollers stock and it made 244 @ 4250 at the rear wheels, with a 4.10 posi, F60-15 tires at 23 psi it ran a best of 13.95 at 100.78. With a dyno tune and 36 degrees of timing it made 272 at 4250 and ran 13.74 at 105.63. With a set of 2" fenderwell style of headers and mufflers hooked up it made 318 at at about 4700 rpm and ran 12.92 at 108.42 with the headers uncorked, hood scoop open, tire pressure at 14 lbs. and pulled 5000 rpm thru the lights. I think that's pretty much as true as it gets. :cool:

I really like those old Chryslers, I remember as a kid seeing a convertible white 55 or 56 300 with gold trim running around Terre Haute IN., I always figured it belonged to one of the Hulman's.
