That is a cool car!

Must sting a little bit to see that it has been neglected & needs a bath. Hopefully it will find a new owner that appreciates all the work that you put into it.

That's nice. This way you may be able to keep track of it.

I don't recall what type of rear axle you were running in that car. Surely it wasn't the original was it?

Yes it was JM , ( 7.5) and I had the original gearset/ carrier back in it with a minispool when it left.

I gave the guy who bought it  from me 3.42's and 4.56's also.

Only twisted 1 axle shaft slightly ( splines) after 31 years of abuse ( that included numerous 7200 rpm  shifts with the built 151/ 4speed and 4000+ rpm launches with slicks)

With the 425 ( stock turbo 400 convertor) just stab and go.

Guys have gone in the 10's in Hbodies with the stock 7.5. ( same goes for FBodies '82 and up cars)

Wow! Back in the early V-8 Vega days of the late 70's & early 80's everyone said that the rear end needed to be changed to a 12-Bolt or 9". I was saving parts to build a '72 Vega panel wagon. I had the car, a '64 327 & a Muncie M-21 I think it was. I don't think it was the M-22 that everyone wanted. That's as far as I got though. Big dreams & teen-aged pockets. I ended up parting it out & buying a more sensible car. Embarrassed  Oh well....

Early Vegas and Pontiac Astres had a 6.5 rear /4 link up  to 75 , Thats when the Monza came to be and every Hbody after that had a 7.5 rear / torque arm .

GM built an Experimental All Aluminum High Compression  , Cammed  302 CID ( overbored 283) V8 Vega with auto trans/ street tires and stock 6.5 rear in 72 . It ran low 14's in the Quarter when tested by HOT ROD magazine.

A quick Yahoo search shows several references to that article along with a page that has several articles listed including that one, unfortunately the links are dead.

Maybe the "Wayback Machine" could dig it up.
