Best 1/4 mile/top speed for late model flattie

I mean stock and a flattie from the early '50's as I would imagine the late flathead V8's were the fastest.

Yeah, thats what I was thinking, probably 19's. I would think 0-60's would be about high 14's for a stock flattie V8.

I think the Ford six of the time would be close as hp/torque weren't much different.
