The 1968 L79 Chevelle was only available with a manual trans, either the standard 3 speed or the optional 4 speed.

The 1970 - 1972 Trans Am Hood Scoop doesn't work, as far as having fresh air taken into the engine. It sits too far forward from the windshield.





The Formula Firebird Hood Scoops did work (very well) as they were in the position to get moving air coming up over the front bumper. It was Pontiac's most functional ram air system

Offered for two years as a factory option very few Shelby GT 350 Mustangs left the factory with a Paxton Supercharger. Only 11 1966 models and 35 1967s were outfitted with the blowers. The $549 price was the reason for the low production, especially in 1967 when for just $200 more, you could get a GT 500 instead of a GT 350.

Though many ads said a 46% increase in horsepower, this claim was unfounded due to no changes to the exhaust system. Real world increase was about 25%. If headers and a 3" exhaust system were added, then you would get the 46% increase.

The 1971 Boss 351 is the only high performance Mustang from 1969-1971 to come with an Autolite carb. The Boss 302, Boss 429 and 428 CJ all used Holley carbs. The 1971 429 CJ? It used a Rochester carb.

In 1969, Ford built a Mach 1 Mustang with a mid mounted Boss 429 to see if it would improve handling and performance

1969 was the first year that the Olds 442 W30 got a fender ID emblem. Olds introduced the W30 during the 1966 model year.





1966 - no emblems

1967 - no emblems

1968 - Rally Stripe





The problem with the 1968 W30 ID is the fact that the Rally Stripes (W36) were an option on any 442.

The 1966 442 with engine option L69: Tri-Carb, was only available with a 4 speed manual trans from the factory. The L69 was announced on November 24, 1965 with cars hitting the dealers show rooms about a month later. It added 10hp and was priced at $114. Olds sold 2,129 L69 equipped 442s in 1966.








For those who had previously bought a 442 or wanted an auto trans, the Tri-Carb setup was available as an over-the-counter Parts Dept add-on.
