My Aunt had a Tempest Sprint with the 4bbl OHC 6er. Several people in my family have said that car with a wide ratio manual trans (deep 1st gear) would run with just about any street car from stoplight to stoplight. Here in the Northeast; the OHC 6 was banned from competing against the Chevy 6's and flathead 8's in the dirt short track days. Mickey Thompson loved that motor as well. Incidentally Ive seen a few show up at cruise-nights. If the engine is detailed nicely, it usually draws a crowd, compared to a similar GTO or Firebird with a stock looking V8.
