One of the biggest power struggles in the late sixties occured between these two fine marques, Chevrolet and Ford. Like Spy vs. Spy, both manufacturers kept upping the ante. Chevrolet with it’s 1969 Camaro Z-28 with it’s reported 290hp 302 cu.in. small block and the Ford Mustang in Shelby 500KR form packing an amazing 428 cu. in. big-block with a rated 335 horsepower.
Everyone knew that those numbers were incredibly conservative, but it really didn’t matter. It was all about bragging rights and where the rubber meets the road, or just how much rubber you could lay down on the road to be more exact!
