"Small blocks and big blocks, no cubic inch limit"

"No scales, no teardowns"


Are these rules even remotely period correct? I wasn't aware bogblocks were legal in PS from 70-74.

No scales? No teardowns? I thought the class ran on a cube/weight index during those days.

Nicholson had a Shotgun in his '70/'71 Maverick....Grump a Rat in his '71 split bumper Camaro, and of course Sox & Martin a Hemi in their 'Cuda.....

Sounds like a fun class for a year or two until someone comes in and destroys it. The way the rules are written it's way to open for someone to come in and really screw the class up legally, but it would be fun to see. I just worry about safety with no minimum weight.

Exactly my thoughts but current NHRA ET safety rules should keep them safe.

That was the norm until the dominance of Grump's Vega changed all that.

Wasn't Grumpy using a small block from word go when Super Super Stock started?

I had thought his Camaros were based on the 427 block....I could be wrong, though.

Yes they were 427 based. His first Pro Stock car (in 1970) was a S/S '68 Camaro where the single Holley was replaced with a dual quad tunnel ram set-up.

Edit: Did a little digging in my library, and found that in 1970, Jenkins raced his Grumpy's Toy VI '69 Camaro in both SS/C trim and in Pro Stock, by swapping engines and hoods. Both this car (driven by Grump) and the 1970-1/2 Camaro (driven by Strickler) ran Pro Stock at the '70 Nationals.
