Trailed in the 60's?
You sure about that?
Sox and Martin were hard to beat ask Grumpy Jenkins. When the 426 Hemi arrived is was pretty much adios for Ford and Chevy. The only thing Chevy had going for it was you could mix and match parts and they were everywhere. The Keith Black Hemi was VERY expensive but ruled Rails and Funny Cars.
In Pro Stock,Grumpy was probably the main nemisis for Sox and Martin but I believe they won the lions share. (Not Sure, but I seem to remember I was always depressed when I looked at results.)
With Ford is was probably a bigger pain in the rear. Hell the 351's were even different Winsdor, Cleveland, Cleveland, Winsdor. Which part went where and where were they. Don't even try to get SOHC 427 they were rare.
Even in Nascar the Super Birds were unbeatable. Then Nascar put the screws to them and the 454 Monte Carlo became competitive and the Ford 427 or 428 started to make in roads.
