Re: Classic Ad For The BBC Crowd

It was a big deal in '65 for the BBC debut over the older 409. 1st 325hp 396's were dogs, a good 300hp 327 would hang with the 396's back then, but it was the cornerstone of one of the best engines GM ever used. Look at all the BBC's people still use inc. me.

I had a 70 Mach 1 351C 4spd 3.90 posi IIRC in 80-82 that ran great, my dad use to argue with me that the 351 windsor was a better engine lol, I also had a 65 Impala SS vert like in the pic but was an orig. 327 pg bucket console car I bought without engine or trans it had a 12 bolt, I put a 73 350 and T350 from a rusted out suburban I had, would have loved to put a BB in it but it ended up being stolen, big block torque is just fun 👍

Re: Classic Ad For The BBC Crowd

I bought a 65 SS Impala from a guy I worked with in 1980, it had a 396 and a P/G trans. Just for sheets and giggles I put the 4.88 12 bolt in it prior to winter, that car was a blast to drive and raced a ton of people stoplight to stoplight. Pulled the 12 bolt out in the spring of the next year and tripled my money on the car, still wished I had not sold it.

Re: Classic Ad For The BBC Crowd

I started working for a soCal GM assembly plant in 1965. I got to see it all, live in living color. Just imagine, 409's and 396's stacked on pallets to the roof in various rpo's. Then came 1966 and 427's.

Re: Classic Ad For The BBC Crowd

A friend I knew from high school had a 66 Caprice with a 396 T400, man for an all stock car that car was fast, ran real close with another friends 62 galaxie that had a 427 bigger cam & headers & 4 spd , he might not have drove as good?

Re: Classic Ad For The BBC Crowd

I always liked those 66 Caprices.. The finned tail lights and extra nice plush interior. My uncle had one with the 396 and TH-400, that car was fast..

These would have run circles around the vast majority of those big cars.

Oh yeah, but what’s wrong with an ultra plus Caprice when heading out to celebrate some L79 victories ?
