Thing is in pretty nice condition. My 900cc motorcycle has almost twice the HP of that 2300cc engine, lol,

25 years ago I built a 392 IHC for my IHC pickup. Took it to a shop to get the jetting and timing dialed in. Guy snickered,put a couple of straps on it. Got the dyno rolling,4th gear,mashed the throttle.

Hp and tq were very very dismal. The smell of burning rubber filled the room. We looked around to see if it had thrown a belt or what. On the 2nd pull we realized that the tires were smoking on the rollers!

The guys then decided to put more straps on it.

The HP and torque curve seem pretty impressive to almost shoot right to Max and hold flattish from a low rpm

Yeah, it's kinda sad with what we were driving back then as compared to the 1960s to the very, very early 70s. Then, everything seemed to STOP! I mean, we were driving V8s with 120-150 hp. laugh

Today, OMG what a difference! I mean, we're driving NA 4 cyl family sedans with ~ 200 hp. And 4 cyl turbos with even greater #s. I mean, we're driving 3500 lb(still heavy) family sedan 4 cyls that'll do 0-60 in the high 5s.

Like I said yesterday, my VW is quicker than a Ferrari 308GTB V8

and its and 85 cu-in "motorcycle" engine in a 3200 lb car.

I'm sure the Ferrari is more fun to drive regardless.

The VW handles pretty bad and lists like a double-decker bus

I had an 1981 Capri 4 cylinder - basically the same car except 5 speed. Yes it had to downshift going up hills and couldn't use cruise control unless it was on flat ground. Gas was $1.35 per gallon at the time which we thought was outrageous. Equivalent to $4+ now. In-line 6 would have been a better choice but it only came with a 4 speed.

The Capri's 2.3 engine made 88 hp or 0.64 hp per cubic inch.

My Fiesta's 1.0 3-cylinder makes 126 hp or 2.1 hp per cubic inch.

And surprisingly they both weigh about 2500 lbs.

No that's the garbage fox platform.

The modified pinto platform of the Mustang II was a much better handler.

I know, I had a King Cobra with a breathed on 302 and a 4 speed.

Car was a blast!

Couldn't handle much worse than a first gen Stang. They drove like a truck.

My first Vette was a 76 that made 180 hp IIRC. Glad things changed a bit....
