While you stuff the parts in your car better add the roll bar.That car will easily go better than 11.50s
im not sure what gears came stock in 73. i put 17 with a 32 inch tire in the rear. they were on my impala that i sold. it had 4.11 funny thing is the 383 with the 295 duration cam responded very well to the change in tire. it was a bit sluggish with the 15s.
