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.

Lot S134 1964 ½ Ford Mustang Convertible Indy 500 Pace Car
Produced on the assembly line on the historic first day of Mustang production in March 1964, this is the Mustang convertible that famously paced the 1964 Indianapolis 500. In fact three identical convertibles were modified for pace car duty by famed Ford race tuners Holman and Moody, who replaced the cars' 260 cubic inch V-8s with 289s built to GT40 specifications. Producing 450 horsepower, these engines made the cars easily capable of the required top speed of 140 miles per hour. The cars were also given lowered suspensions, oversized tires and special chassis bracing to improve high-speed handling. They were then painted bright Pace Car white for better visibility for news photos and television. According to the car's longtime owner and restorer Bruce Weiss, only two of the three convertibles were completed in time for delivery, one to perform pace car duties and the other appointed as backup. The designated car developed problems and so this car was called into service on race day. This very same vehicle would later perform pace car duty at the Sebring 12 Hours, after which it was then retired. Mr. Weiss rediscovered the car at Sebring in the mid-nineties and subsequently restored it to its former glory. Dana Mecum's Original Spring Classic Auction is proud and pleased to present this historical icon of the Indianapolis 500, back home again in Indiana after 44 years.

Pontiac Banshee A Longer Look
The Banshee was a vision for what the Firebird could become. Of course, this concept car could never be built exactly, too low on the road and it wouldn't pass the safety and crash tests, but it was exciting. It demonstrated that the problem with GM cars didn't sit on the designers' shoulders. They were more than capable of dreaming up engaging and fun vehicles that would set imaginations on fire.





Lot S133 2007 Cadillac XLR-V Mallett Convertible
The new Cadillac XLR was touted as the most exciting Cadillac since the 1967 Eldorado, and was welcomed by the automotive press as a step in the right direction. So when the XLR-V was introduced, it was no surprise that it was met with overwhelming approval. The V option featured a new supercharged version of the 4.4-liter Northstar engine that churned out 443 bhp 414 lb-ft of torque, almost 90 percent of which was available by 2200rpm. This abundance of power put the V in the sub-six-second 60mph club. Mallet Cars soon introduced a Hammer package for the XLR-V that added numerous improvements to an already great car. This is one of five 2007 XLR-V Cadillacs given the Mallet treatment that added approximately $38,000 to the initial $100,000 price tag. Black on Black and with only 680 miles since new, this gorgeous V-Hammer is equipped with all available factory options. Ported and polished heads, modifications to the Supercharger, intake and Exhaust manifolds, a complete Corsa Exhaust system and a computer control upgrade add up to a reliable 550hp. Chassis mods include a lowered suspension, upgraded disc brakes, and Michelin Pilot tires on 20-inch custom alloy wheels. Fast, handsome and comfortable, this is one awesome Cadillac! Highlights: - 2007 Cadillac XLR-V with Mallett Hammer Package - All factory options - Ported and polished heads - Modified Supercharger, intake and Exhaust manifolds - Corsa Exhaust system - Computer control upgrade - 550 horsepower - Lowered suspension - Upgraded brakes - 20" Michelins on custom wheels





Big Burnouts: 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari - /BIG MUSCLE
If you haven't figured it out by now, we love wagons on this show. To some they're a misunderstood breed, but to those in the know, they're amazing. Not only were the wagons of yesteryear known for their styling, but their capacity to haul as much cargo as a modern day pickup. This 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari started off life as a Police Wagon, but was transformed by its owner into the kick-ass, tire-shredding monster you see here. With a Nelson Racing Engines 468 cid big-block under the hood, some updated suspension bits and a killer look, this big green machine is outside-the-box styling at its best. Owner: • Mike Artman
