My 66 Ford T-bird would only do 130 mph and that was at redline. It was stock with the 390 engine and 3.08 gears. Yours must have been modded.
Yeah I didnt have the original 390 in it I traded that out for a 460 with a built top and bottom. Also I was running differant gears... Damn rear end it gone on it.. and I got a new Detroit Locker to put in the back to replace the old one.

Im sure in MPH, the tach was @ 45ooRPM in 5th gear. I think his engine redlines @ 6ooo or 7ooo.

He has the SE with a manual swap.

My friend has a 94 SHO 3.0 L 5 speed. It is very fast. Top speed is 141 mph. He can wind it out to 8000 rpm.
I can keep up to him now with my mods but he still has a higher top end....for now.
His 0-60 is 6.5 sec too.

Yeah. They are slow. Never seen one yet beat the GTP or the SSEi, they have come close to the SSEi, but the GTP kills them badly everytime, low end, midrange, or top-end.
