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.
1975 PONTIAC GRAND VILLE BROUGHAM CONVERTIBLE 455 V-8
Here's an acquisition of July 20, 2012! This is a 1975 Pontiac Grand Ville
convertible in its first-year color of Arctic Blue (4,519 produced), the
last year for the convertible in the full-size GM line-up and the only
non-Cadillac model made in its highest trim level as a convertible as both
Olds and Buick convertibles were made on the Delta 88 and LeSabre trim
lines. The Grand Ville first appeared in 1971 as the top of the line with
Bonneville replacing the Star Chief. This was also the last year for the
Grand Ville as Bonneville once again became Head Chief in '76. In '71-'74,
the 455 engine was standard equipment, but was replaced by the 400 in '75
as emission and gas mileage regulations took their toll. The 455 could be
ordered as an option, though, and this car, with 62K miles, is equipped
with it, as well as air-conditioning.

PONTIAC - stock Pontiac Super Duty 421v8/405hp vs stock Chevy 409v8/409hp on DYNO
WATCH THE VID TO SEE HOW CLOSE THEY Dyno TO THEIR FACTORY
405hp/409hp ratings. Growing up.....Pontiac/Oldsmobile old timers/EXPERTS
who taught me most of what I know, often told me Chevy rated their horsepower in a more
optimistic way than say Oldsmobile or Pontiac. I've even heard Pontiac
rated/tested their engines in a 100 degree room, compared to Chevy in a 60
degree room. These Dyno results seem to reflect
that some of what I heard was true. Both of these engines are great, but
the results do seem to show that Pontiac was not rating their horsepower worrying if it
would cause "songs to be written" about their engines .... like the great
song "She's real fine my 409"--(Chevy).
