About 50Hp. Not going to any races in it so drop it and work on style.

Depends if you measure HP with the fan and alternator connected or not. They changed the way that they measured/rated HP of engines in the early 70s. The engine you describe would have been rated 57HP without accessories, and 53HP with accessories connected.
