Actually, a case could be made for the old Hudson Hornets with the dual carbs and tuned exhaust on their flathead engine about the same time as the Olds! With the unibaody (the step-down look), they were lighter than the frame cars, and also Hudson had the forsight to put "extreme duty" brakes, axles and steering arms on them for customer racing.
