jackbird60 is on a distinguished road
Default Squarebird Or 64-66 Bird

Hi! JUST A FREINDLY DISCUSSION. I HAD A 60 BIRD AND REALLY LOVED IT BUT SOLD IT AND NOW LOOKING FOR ANOTHER BIRD. A NICE 66 BIRD CROSSED MY PATH. IT HAS THE 315HP & IT'S GREAT SHAPE IN AND OUT EXCEPT THE SPEEDO DOESN'T WORK?

NOW COMPARING THE 2, THE 66 HAS THE C-6 TRANS, WHICH I BELIEVE IS A BETTER TRANS HOWEVER, OWNING A CLASSIC CAR IS MORE THAN THE PARTS OF THE CAR.

I LIKED THE TORQUE/PULL ON MY 60. THE 66 IS ABOUT 500 LBS HEAVIER, WHICH DOESN'T EXACTLY MAKE IT QUICK IN ANYONE EYES. I AM NOT LOOKING TO RACE IT, JUST LIKE THE FEEL OF A TORQUE & PUSH WHEN NEEDED.

QUESTION IS - WILL I MISS THAT PUSH OFF THE LINE THAT THE 60 HAD VS THE 66??? WILL THE 66 WITH THIS ENGINE HAVE THE PUSH I AM USED TO? THE ENGINE IS A REBUILT, WITH JUST 1,000 MILES, HASEdelbrock intake manifold, Edelbrock air cleaner, MSD ignition, dual exhaust with Ultraflo mufflers.

I WANTED TO STATE THIS SO YOU KNOW THE CONDITION OF THE ENGINE, WHICH BY THE WAY LOOKS PRISTINE?

THANKS -JACK
