'62 CHRYSLER 300H VS BOP CARS - ROAD TEST BUICK INVICTA, SUPER 88


NINETY EIGHT REGENCY

Recommended Posts

Notice the Pontiac taking off harder than the 300-H- a LOT less weight and a 4-spd auto.
But note that the 300-H is packing a 380 HP 413, and a 4bbl Pontiac is commonly s 303 HP 389- the 300 quickly overtakes it.
Olds would have a Jetaway 3-spd, and the Invicta a Twinturbine- video says it's a 2-spd (which it technically is), but L is a planetary gear that's NOT accessed in D, so it operates as a continually variable '1-speed'. Chrysler TorqueFlite 3-spd is a very good performing unit.

Could've had the optional handling suspension package and the finned aluminum drums on the Pontiac- would made noticable differences- about 10-11 feet shorter distances 60-0. Buick should've whomped the 300 in braking tho.

300 letter series cars were great, cutting-edge cars.
