Not Good, Either
Sorry, but Corvettes of that era (genre) were emasculated quite thoroughly by various poor decisions by the Government and equally poor decisions by General Motors. Your Corvette's performance would have been eclipsed by the Buick Regal T (6-cylinder turbocharged with automatic transmossion) of that very same year. I know this to be true from several accounts provided by virtually all of the consumer car magazines of that time and from the actual published hp/weight ratios related to the public from General Motors.
You don't have to take my word for it. Any amount of reasonable research will inexorably lead to the same conclusion(s).
