PONTIAC - "The Super Duty Story" Part 1 of 3
Pontiac had an SD engine program in the late 50s early 60s, and
later/briefly again in 1973/74 with the SD455. This video is regarding the
FIRST Super Duty program.---In only a few years time during the late 50s
early 60s, Pontiac MORE THAN DOUBLED their V8's horsepower output (described
in this video), while using/keeping the same V8 engine block they used thru
1955-81. Even though the same block was kept, from 1955-62 the cubic inch
displacement grew much larger than the initial 287 cuber it started as in
1955. It grew to a 317 347 370 389 and finally a 421 cuber in 1962. It
eventually maxed out at 455 cubes in 1970. By 1970 ALL the other GM
divisions were producing engines at 454 or 455 cubes (500 for Cadillac).
PONTIAC WAS THE ONLY DIVISION still using the same block they used in the
1950s on engines that had a much smaller displacement -- 287 cubes. The
1955 287 displacement would remain the smallest displacement ever used in
the Pontiac V8 block all the way until 1980/81 when a 265V8 was produced.
Since less durability was required for the smaller displacement, the block
was decked/butchered/lightened on the 265/301v8s of 1980/81. Prior to 1980
the block had never been decked/butchered/lightened. The 1980/81 265/301v8
blocks were about 200 pounds lighter than the 1955-79 blocks, and only 25
pounds heavier than a Buick 231V6.

http://www.junkyardjunkeez.com Sam is still in shock from discovering a
1962 Pontiac Parisienne Convertible on this farm junkyard tour. He explains
how easy it is to miss something like this when you assume a pirated car
will be a sedan. He talks about how you need to look close when you are
hunting for old cars at farmyards. Look for part 1 on YouTube or visit our

Fully sorted and paint shop fresh, this 1965 GTO is the PERFECT car for any
serious GTO fan who wants to prowl the streets in one of the most bad ass
American cars to ever hit the road.
The beneficiary of a complete frame up restoration, this handsome GTO is a
perfect blend of expert craftsmanship and fine attention to detail. The
cars straight and solid body is covered in a deep, highly polished coat of
GM code A Starlight Black paint that is so fresh you'll swear you smell wet
paint as soon as you're within five feet of its glistening panels. Under
that paint, straight and tight panel gaps, which are consistent throughout
the car, indicate that this GTO was a solid piece even before the
restoration began; and, as we all know, with a color like Starlight Black
you simply can't hide misalignments of imperfections. The result is a
clean, show-worthy GTO which looks great hammering down the highway, but is
subtle enough to stay under the radar.
Under the hood you'll find a YS 389 V8 that was completely rebuilt during
this GTOs extensive restoration and then upfitted with Pontiac's legendary
Tri-Power setup. Correct chrome valve covers sit at the sides of three
Rochester 2 barrel carburetors which each sport their own small, round air
cleaner as original. Below those carburetors, a brand new coat of correct
Pontiac Turquoise adorns the car's engine block from intake to oil pan, and
a correct optional seven blade GTO fan sits behind a correct radiator
that's equipped with correct GM hoses and tower clamps. At the sides of the
block, correct reproduction Exhaust
manifolds send spent gases into a true dual Exhaust system, and throughout the engine bay,
detailing is nicely done including a properly finished master cylinder, a
correct bright yellow throttle return spring, correct decals and a correct
reproduction Delco Energizer battery.
Logging very few miles since their complete restoration, this GTOs satin
black floor and rust free frame are absolutely spotless and present as if
they were brand new. During the restoration, the car's front suspension was
completely rebuilt along with the its four wheel drum brakes and power
steering was added to make the turns a little more manageable. Power from
the growling 389 is sent to a Muncie 4-speed transmission which spins a
familiar GM 10 bolt rear end that's complete with new coil springs, new
shocks and a reproduction maintenance tag. In front of that transmission,
the cars turquoise oil pan is completely dry indicating no leaks, and at
the sides of that transmission, a nice mandrel bent true dual Exhaust system incorporates two turbo mufflers, authentic wrinkle bent tail pipes
and stainless steel turn downs. At the corners, correct silver painted
rally wheels wear perfect stainless trim rings and center caps inside of
four E70-14 Firestone Super Sport Wide Oval redlines.
Inside the car a newly assembled black vinyl interior features firm Pontiac
stitched seats and a completely restored walnut veneer trimmed dash.
Positioned directly in front of the driver, correct optional rally gauges
that are intended to be reminiscent of European sports cars look great and
function just as well as they did in 1965. Below those gauges, a correct
factory optioned AM push button radio sits in excellent looking new chrome
trim which contrasts well with the gloss black lower dash. Between the
seats, a new full length console holds a chrome Hurst shifter inside of
excellent looking 'mile-long' finned trim, and below the console, new black
carpet is protected by color matched floor mats with vibrant GTO emblems.
At the sides of the seats, new door panels feature new stainless trim and
chrome handles under correct red GTO emblems, and above the seats a new
black headliner still retains its factory gloss. In front of the driver, a
correct stainless trimmed Pontiac steering wheel features a trademark
turquoise centerpiece inside of a pristine chrome horn ring.
Packing a Tri-Power 389 under the hood and a slick shifting 4-speed Muncie
transmission, this iconic black on black '65 GTO is an ideal blend of
performance and style!
