1962 Pontiac Catalina 421 Super Duty - Gateway Motorsports Park - Huge Wheelie
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV 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 watching!

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!

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 Clevite bearings Hastings rings Felpro Gaskets 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 carburetors 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.





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.

Rare 1957 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible Fuel-Injected 347 V8 315HP
I thought you'd like a look at this extremely rare 1957 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible. 1957 was the first year for the Bonneville and it was only offered as a convertible. When it was introduced, the Bonneville was the fastest Pontiac ever produced. This Bonneville is number 116 of the only 630 produced in 1957. This is probably the finest restored example ever offered for sale. It has been treated to a correct frame-off/rotisserie restoration. Every part of this car is 100% factory correct and numbers matching. Every component was restored to as new or better condition. Most of the chrome was NOS and it all, the interior and exterior was show chrome plated. The Bonneville is painted in Kenya Ivory with a Tartan red interior. Boasts a fuel injected 347 300+hp( approximately 315 HP) V8, Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, Wonderbar AM radio, a deluxe ivory steering wheel, a padded dash, a clock, cowl vent, chrome wheel discs, and whitewall tires. It has the total power group including a power-operated convertible top, a power antenna, power steering, power brakes, power windows, and an eight-way power-operated seat. This Bonneville was judged 396 out of 400 at the Pontiac Oakland Club Nationals and has been awarded in every show it's been shown at. The 1957 Bonneville is a very rare car. This Bonneville is one of the best of its kind in the world - it is pristine museum quality. Thanks for taking a look!

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).
