1962 Pontiac Catalina 421 Super Duty - Gateway Motorsports Park - Huge Wheelie
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
This is a video of an awesome 9 Second, 1962 Pontiac Catalina. This Super
Stock Pontiac was racing in the Nostalgia Drags at Gateway Motorsports
Park, just outside of St. Louis, MO. It's an original 421 Super Duty car
and man do they have it set up right. This thing hooks hard and leaves
straight every time. Definitely nothing wrong with a mid 9 second quarter
mile at 143 mph. I thought you might get a kick out of that huge wheelie he
pulled on the one run. I hope you found it interesting....thanks for

PONTIAC - "The Super Duty Story" Part 1 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.
Big Burnouts: 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari - /BIG MUSCLE
If you haven't figured it out by now, we love wagons on this show. To some
they're a misunderstood breed, but to those in the know, they're amazing.
Not only were the wagons of yesteryear known for their styling, but their
capacity to haul as much cargo as a modern day pickup. This 1964 Pontiac
Catalina Safari started off life as a Police Wagon, but was transformed by
its owner into the kick-ass, tire-shredding monster you see here. With a
Nelson Racing Engines 468 cid big-block under the hood, some updated
suspension bits and a killer look, this big green machine is
outside-the-box styling at its best.

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!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

Firing up A Brand New Chevy 409 Engine
My dad and I built a Chevy 409ci engine, and we fired it up for the first
time today. It has a roller camshaft and valve train setup, so it didn't
need the always worrysome break in procedure that a flat tappet engine
requires. This video is from the second time we ran it, as we had to shut
it down on the first try, due to a coolant leak. All of the smoke is from
the anti-freeze on the headers, and the fact that they're brand new
headers. Here's a spec list on the engine:
1963 Chevrolet 409 block (stock bore)
1961 409 forged crankshaft
Stock connecting rods
1963 high performance forged pistons
11:1 compression ratio
ARP Main Studs, Rod Bolts, Head bolts, and accessory bolts
Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum cylinder heads
Comp Cams hydraulic roller 236/242 duration at .050-inch lift, .578/.593
max lift, 110 LSA
Comp Cams roller lifters, pushrods, Comp Ultra Pro Magnum 1.7:1 rocker arms
Edelbrock Performer RPM dual quad intake with dual 500cfm four-barrel
Edelbrock as-cast finned aluminum valve covers (air cleaner not pictured)
Edelbrock aluminum water pump
Pertronix billet distributor, coil and plug wires
Hooker 1-7/8-inch Super Competition headers
Engine break-in and initial tuning is being performed on a home-made engine
run in stand, complete with a battery, fuel supply and cooling system. Stay
tuned for more videos on this engine, as we tune it, in preparation for
some Dyno time.
1961 Pontiac Bonneville Hardtop Slvr
Beautiful car, with a 1962-63 replacement Pontiac racing engine. The
ultimate in beauty and performance. Admittedly, not for someone who can't
afford the fuel, but this car makes a real performance statement!

Chevy and Pontiac graveyard. Melbourne,Australia.
So many of these graveyards exist all over the world. This one from right
here in Melbourne,Australia. Where in Melbourne this place is i don't know.
These are all original rhd's too.All Aussie assembled and sold new here.
There should be a law against this. These old analogue pics were given to
my brother about 10 years ago now by an old workmate of his. The pics were
already quite old back then,so much so that the guy couldn't remember where
this place was. These pics are definately from the 80s and there is a red
kodak stamp on the back of each photo with 'dec 85' next to it. I'm
convinced that's the date they were developed.
