I always thought a early 70's chevy passenage car or truck engines made about 175 to 185hp at the wheels.

A friend of mine had a 73 corvette and on the shifter console it said 190hp and 270ftlbs.

Not hard to increase power in a sbc. A good set of aftermarket heads, a mild camshaft, a set of headers, and 100 more hp is possible with about the same idle characteristics.
