Top speed

Anyone know the top speed of a 71 fastback with the 429 putting out 360hp?

A 429 Mach 1 was among the 1971 Mustangs that Chuck Koch tested for a January 1971 Motor Trend review. It did 6.5 seconds 0-60 mph, 13.8 at 104 in the quarter mile, topped out at nearly 114 mph and averaged just 9-10 mpg on premium gas.
Which sounds oddly slow to me for a top speed. Check out the mileage figures... Yikes..

Depending on gear ratio. That big block is not very high revving either. Little work in it and it should do what ever you want it to do.

Re: Top speed

With a 3.25 axle, that car should be able to hit 130 easy, I would think. Not that I would want to drive it that fast...

Re: Top speed

most autox tracks are not big enough to go as fast as you can and doing it on the street is simply a very bad idea.
