What's a 69 2door lesabre with a 350sbb like. Is it a dog?
I had one about 30 years ago, it had about 110,000 on it. It was not a dog, it was pretty good. Mine was the "400" which had the 350 with a 4 barrel and the Turbo 400. The car is heavy, so it's no torque monster like the 455, but it will squeal the tires and surprise a few kids driving badly hopped up Fox-bodies. I liked it; it was pretty good on gas and it would pass on the highway nicely. The Turbo 350 on the 2 barrel helps that engine, I had a 340 with the 300 and that was definitely slower, the extra gearing keeps the engine in the torque band longer.
I owed it at the same time I had a 69 Wildcat with a transplanted 455 Stage 1, while the differences were definitely noticeable and the 455 was definitely quicker, the 350 was still respectable.
