Response to just for schlits and giggles, my 56' w/312 ran 15.00 1/4 mile/ 86 mph

Thanks for posting that, I am always looking for data like that, the more detail the better.
Old y-block data is kinda rare, before the aluminum heads era.

Do you know the car weight w driver? I guessed 3760 w driver.
Was it still a 3-on-the-tree or floor shift (faster)?

I took some guesses with the Gonkulator, but getting more like 89mph instead of 86mph. Maybe headwind or running out of gas on top?
Those were the Teapot aka Firebox Holleys? I haven't heard em called Mousetraps before.
