1963 Pontiac Grand Prix 421HO - First Run
First drive of my car after a 10-year frame-off restoration of a one family-owner car. This is a numbers matching 421HO four-speed car purchased new by my parents. The 421 has been bored .035 and 23cc dished Ross pistons installed along with Eagle h-beam rods and a custom grind hydraulic roller from SD Performance. The original 716 heads have been CNC ported and hand blended by SD as well. The tri-power was professionally restored and re-plated by Jon Havens. Original T10 close ratio 4-speed has been moth-balled and replaced with an Auto Gear M23 wide-ratio. Car has a 3:42 safety-track.

PONTIAC Grand Prix (1970 455cid w/rare 4speed, of which only around 500 were made)
A truly overlooked Luxury Performer. One of the top car magazines back in the day tested a 390hp1969 H.O.428cid Grand Prix and reported times of 0-60 in 5.5 and a 13.8 quarter. This 1970 455v8 Grand Prix in the video was rated with 20hp less (370hp for the 1970 455) due to emissions detuning for 1970. The 1970 455 was basically a larger (stroked) 428 with some emissions detuning.
