Shows pictures of every year of Wildcat. Those torque numbers are insane! Too bad your buddy didn't get a '70 Wildcat.....

455ci V8....


370bhp @ 4600rpm....



510 lb/ft torque at 2800rpm........ absolutely astounding! Sign me up please.

That is a really good car.
I know it well. Used to drive one back in the 70'*.
Mega torque. Heavy car but drives well on the highway. A real cruiser. Kick it down at 60 mph and it shoves you back in the seat and wails up to 100 in no time.

I remember getting a ticket once in it when driving thru North Carolina. on our way back from a Florida trip.
Very reliable engine.

BUY IT

definitly worth it, maybe you can get a discount now that you know what he bought it for and what he did to it.
