The 3.5 to 3.5 will be a very close match up.

When I had my 4.6L Thunderbird. My LHS and the Tbird were a fender to fender race on the street. 15.8 vs 15.5 at the track but on the street my Tbird would spin a bit making them pretty much equal, even past their trap speed of 88mph.

Anyways back to the thread here. I ran a 3.5L 300 rear wheel drive in my Tbird.
I pulled out a fender on the green light and he hung at my side door all the way to about 80mph. So the fender was most likely reaction time. So for arguements sake it was a dead heat.

From what I see you would need timing lights from the track to see the clear winner.

69 Super Bee (under construction)
65 Belvedere 225
87 Ram D150 5.9L, 5 spd
94 LHS 3.5L
93 Mustang LX 5.0L, 5 spd

The First gen 3.5 will beat the 2.7 Charger no doubt. You got the charger pushin 190 peak. and the trep pushin 214. The base first gen woudntm but ES will.

I think the 300M would beat a charger SXT as well just because the differnce in weight. and torque, charger is way to top heavy.

Trim level doesn't dictate engine size in first gens.

For some reference, the 3.5 LX does 0-60 in 8 seconds. The 3.5 2nd gen does about the same, i'm not sure about the first gen though,

Been there and done it. The 3.5 LX is a tank ( only heavier ) on wheels, no balls whatsoever. I can't imagine what the 2.7 is like.
