    Those fuel thirsty 460s will usually zero the gas gauge before they’ll peg the speedometer. LOL

    It would probably be rev limited because of the low gears typical on a truck this era. If it got much more than 70 I would be impressed.

    cant really say. it depends on the gearing. if you have low gearing you might only be able to do 55-60 high gear maybe 120. who knows without saying the gear ratio

    I’t will go faster than you would want in that ole truck, over 100 with just about any gearing..

    Here is a speed calculator, just plug in your gearing and tires size..
