I had a 1968 Chevelle SS 396. 325HP, Powerglide and 3.08's peg leg rear end.
It would smoke the right rear tire (bias ply) for the complete 1/4 mile as long as you kept your foot in it. I would get the rear tire replaced about every two weeks under warranty at CTC. LOL. Ran 15.20@92mph all factory stock.
Later I built a 454 LS6 with a th350 and 3.73's for it. Ran 13.30@105
I still have the TH350 transmission and OEM air cleaner from that car, on my Bird.
