1963 Pontiac LeMans convertible
Beauty! This blue color was common at the time..most manufacturers offered
a version of it! Notice the character creases in the rear quarter and the
trim that accentuates the fenders. Some versions of the car had the 326
c.i. engine as this one does..others had a V8 engine essentially cut in
half and offered as a four cylinder model (195 c.i.). The transmission was
aft, and a flexible driveline connected it to the engine. A good example
of how engineering experimentation was alive and well at GM during this
Nunzi's 1963 4 Cylinder Super Duty Tempest-Part 2
Hungry for more, Nunzi, the crew, and his 4 Cylinder '63 Tempest headed
back to Atco Racetrack in hopes to break 11's. Success came early in the
day hitting 11.74. When the spectators asked Nunzi if he was satisfied with
the 11.74 run, he quickly replied "I'm not done yet."
-Thanks to my son Tony for his hard work and the gang for their help,

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 - "The Super Duty Story" Part 2 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.
