Your buddies Mustang had a drop out oumpkin for the rear end gears, the Chevy does not. You'll hav to decide what gearing will work best, hard charging off the line, follow techs' advice. Top end speed, run with a taller gear and will get better mpg. In 68 Chevy had a pretty good variety of engines, if you have the double hump heads it's probably a 327, to know for sure you'll have to get some numbers off the block, there may be an easier way, someone smarter than me maybe able to tell you. I'd definitely go dual exhausts, maybe an edelbrock intake and carb. How does the car shift? If you can run it up to about 70 in low gear, it's probably a powerglide. It sounds like a pretty nice car, I'd keep it simple as far as modifying goes. Dan
