Lot S152 1962 Pontiac Super Duty 421 405 HP 4 Speed
As Stock drag racing heated up at the dawn of the Sixties, the factories
were serving up a constant stream of engines, transmissions and lightweight
body parts. In response, the sanctioning bodies started dedicated classes
to separate the special lightweight factory racers from the amateur weekend
sportsmen running real showroom stockers.
Pontiac answered the competition in 1962 by offering an expanding range of
performance parts and special option packages, the most potent being the
Catalina Super Stock package. At its heart was the 421 CI Super Duty engine
featuring four-bolt mains, a forged steel crank, McKellar solid lifter cam
and dual Carter four-barrel carbs on an aluminum intake. A 4-speed manual
transmission was optional. The Catalina Super Stock saved considerable
weight through the application of aluminum bumpers, hood, fenders and other
alloy components, including, late in the season, an aluminum-case 4-speed.
Owned and raced by Howard Maseles in 1962, the "Packer Pontiac" was number
84 of the run of approximately 180 SS Catalinas. An NHRA C Stock record
holder, the "Packer Pontiac" was lightning quick in Maseles' hands, posting
an 11.73 at the 1962 Indy Nationals, at a time when many of his competitors
were still running in the low-to-mid 12s.
The restoration of this vintage Super Duty Pontiac was done by owner Bill
Blair, High Point, NC and the car is still being campaigned by Bill across
the country at drag strips and car shows.

Applied Flow Technology - Competition Cylinder Heads
Applied Flow Technology began in 1990 - but the seeds were planted much
earlier. Mark Atkins, the founder of A.F.T. began repairing and modifying
sports cars in the mid 1970's. He continued honing his mechanical skills
through the balance of that decade and into the next while campaigning a
small block Chevrolet powered drag car which ultimately ran high nine
second E.T.'s at over 133 M.P.H. in the quarter mile. This car he
completely built himself, including the engine and chassis. It was early
experiences with subcontracted machine work of substandard quality which
prompted Mark to begin doing the work himself. With the purchase of some
simple valve equipment and a flow bench in 1990 Applied flow Technology was
born. Since that time A.F.T. has steadily acquired both valuable experience
and state of the art equipment to assure you of the best possible accuracy
and performance. Our race record spans the gamut from 2 SCCA runoff wins in
the GT category to multiple wins in the 358 modified class at the Syracuse
mile track. Our heads and manifolds set the standard wherever they compete.
While Applied Flow Technology is best known for our race winning dirt and
asphalt stock car inductions, we have also produced heads for everything
from 600 plus horsepower Hondas to 12
cylinder Ferraris. We are currently in the early stages of development on
Ducati motorcycle head modifications, an area of the business in which we
hope to see significant growth in the coming years. There is very little
you can dream up that we cannot handle successfully. Along with cylinder
head machining, porting and flow development we also offer complete
aluminum head welding and repair. We routinely machine custom valves, seats
and guides to customer's specifications. We also perform port
modifications, which are subsequently disguised, as well as stock
appearing, if needed. While the main thrust of business at Applied Flow
Technology is and always will focus on cylinder heads, our capabilities
extend well beyond those areas. We have a Hines computerized spin balancer
to handle any engine balancing need. We also do custom piston and block
machining for our customers. Call us with all your performance/competition
