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).

1961 PONTIAC BONNEVILLE CONVERTIBLE -- THE SPLIT GRILLE IS BACK
Redesigned Pontiacs this year brought about the split grill look once again after the 1960 model eliminated that look. The '59 was the first split grille which was a look that eventually morphed into the Pontiac beak in later years. This new design also promoted the " wide track " look that was featured in tire commercials with a cartoonish Pontiac. All Pontiac models were popular this year and started with the low-end Tempest, then Catalina, Ventura, Star Chief, and the top of the line Bonneville. Bonneville models included the Custom Safari 4 door wagon, Sport Hardtop coupe, Vista hardtop sedan, and the convertible coupe as this example is shown. A Bonneville convertible weighs3,905 lbs., and cost $3,476 new. This Pontiac has the V8, 389 cid with tri-power, ( three 4 barrels ), with - get this - 348 hp. See, this is another example of how Pontiac contributed not only to GM coffers but an iconic automotive historical footnote. Watch this Pontiac dream car. To me it's just a fantastic looking car. I believe the price tag of nearly 59 thousand also reflects the favorable collectability of this beauty. Some lucky person bought this Pontiac some time ago. Sorry. Thanks very much for viewing this 1961 Pontiac Bonneville Tri-Power convertible.

PONTIAC - The Glory Years! Part 1 of 5
(1956-93). Some great basic Pontiac history, along with the CARS and PEOPLE (Bunkie Knudsen, John Delorean, Jim Wangers, Pete Estes, etc) who made Pontiac great in those years. In 1956 Bunkie Knudsen was hired as Pontiac's General Manager. He was told by GM "Turn Pontiac around in 5 years or the division is gone". Within about a year he quickly assembled a great team. Knudsen was fortunate enough to pick up engineer John Delorean from Packard when that company closed, Delorean later became the father of the GTO and MANY Pontiac Innovations. Knudsen was also fortunate enough to lure a brilliant "Olds Rocket V8" engineer away from Oldsmobile---Pete Estes who helped the Pontiac V8 breath as well as it could.

Mecum Auction Presents - Lot # S117 1961 Pontiac Ventura
Arnie Beswick's 1961 "Passionate Poncho" Ventura still ranks as one of the most successful Pontiac factory-built racecars of all time. This Bristol Blue hardtop came from the factory as a 389/348 Tri-Power car with the Super Duty heads and camshaft shipped in the trunk. Once installed, the horsepower was raised to 363 horsepower, a number intentionally underrated by the factory. This is the car that Beswick drove to the '61 Daytona Winternationals and won with. Arnie went on to win a large number of Super Stock races throughout the country that season, solidifying his place as a major player in the Super Stock, A/FX and Funny Car wars of the 1960s. This car is an exceptional example of the breed, verified by Mr. Beswick himself. It is finished in the original race livery and is in its correct 1961 race configuration.
