I seem to remember the power band being way up high on the 302 in the first gen. Z/28, so I think a good similarity for the 5th gen. version.

Depends on what year replica you were working on in my opinion, I don't think that rule change was in effect until 1970.

One of my favorite cars from back in the day was a friend's '66 GTO with three deuces and 4 speed, loved the tailights on them, performed pretty well too. Lot's of great cars back then.

As has been discussed on this forum previously, the first gen Indy Pace Cars got the Rally Stripes as well, so those stripes were not totally exclusive to the Z/28.
