I am hoping that someone here collects Motor Trend and has the full set from 1970. Initially I am just looking for the 1970 issue with the rumoured 54 Dodge Pace car article. I am still trying to track down the actual horsepower increase that the 4 bbl car and dual exhausts gave the Pace Car over the normal 1954 241 two bbl's 150 hp.

Point me to the correct issue if you can.

Thanks

Just heard back (email) from Backissues.com. They can't tell me which issue I am looking for because they don't have any indexes to look at. They would need to physically pull the 12 issues of Motor Trend from the shelves and visually scan all 12 indexes to tell me which one that I am looking for. I phoned to confirm that and the response was basically "unless you know which issue you want, we can not tell you". They will not manually scan the indices.

Any suggestions as to where I might find these 1970 indices welcomed.

Or an image of the index of the magazine I need to find really welcomed.

This is all I have to work with at the moment (I've looked at all 12 1970 covers and they don't provide any good info)

I also emailed Motor Trend with photos of the Pace Car and this message:

"Hi there. I am looking for an article about the 1954 Dodge Royal Indy Pace Car that I am told was in a 1970 issue of Motor Trend. I want to buy a back issue of that magazine but I cannot determine which month in Volume 22 1970 that I am looking for. Unfortunately, I don't know whether 1970 is even correct. Regardless, I am hoping that you can access an archive of Motor Trend indices and figure out which month/year I am looking for. The article should show a photo similar to those attached."
