A friend of mine swears that his 76 small block Cordoba has 2.14's in the rear, I've looked everywhere and can't find any mention of such a tall gear available in these cars. Is he mistaken or is Google just failing me on this one? That thing must accelerate at about half the speed of smell.

The lowest I have ever seen was 2.45 (once), but the normal low I see is 2.73

I need him to take a picture of the tag as he's 100% sure it says 2.14, I'm sure either he's looking at the wrong thing, or he needs to lay off the sauce while working on the car.

I have an '87 5th Ave. with a 2.26 7 1/4 in it. Until I got this car, I did not know Ma went that high.
