'64 Impala Muscle D Setup

Here's the setup used for the '64 Impala in the big Muscle D Comparison test at the Goose Point circuit. With it, the car turned a 5:42.50 time. No doubt this setup could be improved, starting with a switch to a Chevy 400 small block. But it still will be an older, heavier car with manners to match. That doesn't mean it isn't fun to drive, just be realistic in your expectations.
