1963 Pontiac LeMans Rare 4 Cylinder Four Barrel Four-speed 3.73 Posi - Half of a 389 V8
I thought you might like a look at this very unique 1963 Pontiac LeMans.
It's powered by a 194.5 Cubic Inch 45 Degree Four Cylinder, topped with a 4
BBL Carb, and running through dual Exhaust. Pontiac, basically cut a 389 V8 in
half...in fact, it uses the same head as the 389 and the 421. In this case,
the four cylinder is backed by a four-speed manual and a set of 3.73 Gears
with Posi. As you can see, it really is a great looking car and would look
right at home on the dragstrip in the 1960's. I hope you find it
interesting, thanks for taking a look!

1965 Pontiac Tempest Wagon
Here's a 65 Tempest wagon in amazing shape! It has a numbers matching 326ci
V8 and a fresh 200-R4 4 speed automatic transmission! The engine has 18,000
miles on it since the rebuild so everything is in tip top condition! The
car only has 92,000 original miles. The paint is in fantastic shape,
especially considering it's 47 years old! It has restored 7x14 Rally II
wheels with BFG tires, a new power brake system, new power steering pump,
new power rear window motor, and tons of other new parts. The entire car
has been gone through and is entirely mechanically sound. The interior has
been restored using much of the original vinyl, has new carpet, a new
headliner, new arm rests, and the AM radio works! Other options include
front and rear sway bars, new 2 1/2 inch Exhaust and new splitters, new windshield and
heater core, and way too much to list! Comes with a 4 barrel setup as well!
This thing is ready for a road trip!
Knafel Tin Indian 1966 GTO vs. Running Bear 1963 Tempest Launch
This is at The Pontiac Nationals in Norwalk OH on August 8, 2010. Both
these cars were originally built/prepped and driven by "Akron" Arlen Vanke.
Arlen is riding in the Red Running Bear Car. The cars launch and go
through first gear. Both are the ACTUAL cars not clones. The '66 GTO is
built to stock specs with a .060 389 Tripower 4 spd and 4.33 gears.
Running bear is set up to do more aggressive track duty with a worked 455.
Back in the day Running Bear ran a Super Duty 421 to low 11's in the A/FX
factory experimental class. The Tin Indian DOMINATED B and C stock running
consistent mid 12's and to Arlen's recollection a best time of 12.22 at
112mph. The GTO won Stock Eliminator at the Nascar Winter Nationals in
Daytona and followed that up by going 27 rounds and winning the Spring
Nationals in Bristol, TN. The '66 GTO never lost a race in it's class. Norm
"Sonny" Tanner is riding shotgun in the GTO. Tanner drove for Knafel
Pontiac in the late 60's and early 70's. Running Bear is now owned and
driven by Tim Benko. The Tin Indian is now owned by Merle Green and his
son Mike Green is driving in the video.
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).
4Sale fastest street car ?? 2000 hp 1963 Pontiac LeMans
MORE PICS HERE!!!
NOT MY CAR!!! Just thought it was a cool video.
This beast sports a twin turbo 522cid
big block Chevy that screams out 1250hp on pump gas and a ridiculous 2000hp
on race gas! Ever go 0 to 150mph in 5 seconds -- Butch can. Butch and his
3700lb Pontiac cruise the local streets (with parachute, of course) and run
the quarter in 7 seconds. How many 70 year old men have the nuts to mash
the throttle on 2000hp? Not sure, but Butch sure does. The Pontiac was
transformed into this behemoth at Nelson Supercars.
