A piece of literature like this is an interesting study in horsepower and a refutation to those who say a diesel will out perform a gasser.
Note the hp outputs of the two different engines: the diesel with 201 ci vs the gasser with 192 ci. The gasser puts out only .4 hp less. In 1968 they put 201 gassers in these and I'll bet they outperformed the 201 diesel.
Granted, the gasser probably used about 25-30% more fuel but that's not the point of my post.
