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.

1963 Pontiac Tempest Lemans with Rebuilt 326 and Convertible Top. Mickey Thompson won all sorts of awards and trophies with this car. It was ground breaking putting a big block V8 in such a small chassis. This was the GTO before the GTO. I have over 70 Trans Ams, also collected GTO's Camaro's, Oldsmobile. I also have a big collection of Mercedes, Cadillacs, Ford you name it I probably have it. My name is Nathan give me a call anytime at 406-544-6919 if you have any questions.

1964 Pontiac Tempest 455 V8 High Performance Muscle Car
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1964 Pontiac Tempest. This is a great example of Pontiac muscle that has been frame off restored and modified just enough to make it exciting! It's decked out in white paint with a red vinyl interior and factory steel wheels with correct hubcaps for a classic Pontiac look, but wait until you open up the hood. There you will find a completely rebuilt Pontiac 455 CID V8 complete with roller rockers, HO Exhaust manifolds, Edelbrock 4 barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Pontiac Torker II aluminum intake, Mallory Hy Fire electronic ignition, and a 4 core radiator. The transmission is a rebuilt turbo 350 Automatic with a 2500 stall, and all of this is run through a Ford 9" posi rear end with 3.73 gears. There's plenty of power to spare in this beast! Other options include hub caps, red line radial tires, factory style wheels, power steering, seat belts, bucket seats, and an in dash tachometer. Thanks for taking a look!
