Muscle Car Of The Week Video Episode #89: 1962 Pontiac Catalina Super Duty Super Stock Video
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - This week, we dive into drag racing history once again with a 1962 Pontiac Catalina Super Duty, featuring the race-bred 421 V8 and the aluminum front body panels. This car was successfully campaigned by the Packer Pontiac team driven by Howard Maseles. In it's day, this car ran the quarter in 11.73 at 118 MPH, good enough for a national NHRA Super Stock record. Today, it is one of the many historical Muscle Cars in the Brothers Collection.





1961 Pontiac Catalina Hardtop Yel OT060113
Pontiac was at the height of its styling...lots of great things would happen for the marque during this decade! The clean modern lines went well with modern architecture...the glass wall houses and the more modest one story ranchers. Seems to me that "modern" style had its fingers in everything that people used, from their ball point pens to the kitchen appliances, to the cars they drove and the houses they lived in. Of course this car shows how adaptable it was to racing!

Here are some photos of old A/FX cars & early to late Pro Stockers with Jan & Dean and The Beach Boys doin' some classic oldies. NOTE: 'Chevoom' 1966 Chevelle sponsored by Gratiot Auto Supply in Detroit was one of the first A/FX or early 'Funny Cars' I ever saw run. Ran mostly at Detroit Dragway (Sibley # Dix roads).
