The big hitters were quick, LS6 chevelle =low 13's,most however were not that quick mid 14 to 15 second range many small block cars were in the 16 second range.However also this was due to the tires of the day a 327/350 hp duece with good tires can go 12's.But for every 350 hp chevy 2 there were probably 50 to 100 327 -300 hp, 283 220 hp cars out there living on the reps of there faster brethern.Same goes for ma mopar for every extremely quick 6 pack car there were hundreds of plain jain 383 cars.Really depends on the options picked.It was the same then as now speed costs money how fast ya wanna go?
