What, it doesn't count that a 90s 305 makes the same hp (or more)

The 50 point penalty is for not using a ZL-1 when it's allowed for free.

 

Base engine in '68-'69 (four side gill cars) was 300 hp.

do C2's have bigger tanks? I have no idea

 

It was on the Z06 coupe package.  Might have been a special option outside of that as well.  36 gallons or something like that.  Very rare, intended for endurance racing only, but it was a factory option code.  They made about 200 of them, total.  As far as actual mass produced cars, the late C3 at 24 gallons has the biggest production tank I know of any car on the VPI list outside of a few wagons, vans, full-size trucks, and the Olds 88.

Unless you got one with the Mickey Thompson tank ...

 

C3 was mostly a carry-over from the C2.

Can you imagine having to dump nearly 7 fuel cans in at every stop?  You'd have to rotate your fuel person out mid stop to prevent them from getting arm fatigue.

But there's a rear diff installed and the brakes and suspension are still present. ;)

Diff is no big deal, brakes would have to be rebuilt, and the suspension is questionable.  Front suspension should have the coil springs not  leaf.  Car sits high in the front, should be wedge shape.  Body panels were riveted  on  not bonded.  Car has potential but needs A Lot of work & $$$$$.
