I'll give you the mathematical answer.
Most "10 second cars" back in the day would have ran a 13 second 1/4 mile.

Tires did NOT hook back then, cars weren't usually kept in ultimate tunes, and the actual performance of an untouched original musclecar would never rival what these cars claim to run nowadays....

Original (REAL STOCK) musclecars were alot slower than many people pretend. They were cool, had tons of character, but EVERYBODY has a neighbour with a "stock 13 second Duster"....

I think big block musclecars that actually could RUN a 13 second 1/4 mile time, dead stock, were very few and far between.
