Good eye.

No CMP of mine comes even close to 50 MPH....except maybe down a steep hill and then I don't know if the brakes are going to stop me at the bottom .. !

Default C60S Radio Truck Terminal Volocity Down Hill

Hi Robert

My C60S has a terminal volucity on long 9% grades of about 50 MPH. To go faster you use throttle. When it had the original 216 engine it did 0 to 60 MPH in about 12 minutes on flat ground. Once drove it for over hour on the Interstate for 2 hours never had my foot off the floor never shifted gears. With the 261 you have to backout of the throttle on flat roads to keep it from going over 60 on flat highways. Thing has the aerodynamics of a brick. Also has the 0 to 100 speedo.

Of my three CMPs the C60S has the long legs and loves the highway, it and the driver are happy and comfortable doing road speed of 60 because of rubber overdrive truck is turning RPMs for 50. Neither of the others are happy going above 40 MPH.

Cheers Phil

Phil recycled a pair of JATO bottles from an old derelict C-130 and he fires them whenever he wants to keep up with traffic on the highways ....

Many GM cars of the period had a very similar design dash but they went to 110. In 1940 none of them could go anywhere near that speed unless they lost their brakes descending Pike's Peak.

The Ford GP speedo went to 100. Now that would be exciting in a jeep doing the ton!

Looked very impressive and the fact it was there gave the illusion of "potential".

Still the same today! Kids will say "my dad's car can do 230 km/hr!", while it can't do anything near that, plus there's no road safe enough to test it's real top speed
