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.
Wide-Track: 1959 Bonneville - /BIG MUSCLE
• Chuck Cushner
Slathered in Lamborghini orange paint and exuding a presence that is
anything but subtle, this 1959 Bonneville is a car that represents a peak
time in American automotive design. It was drafted before government
mandates and regulations stifled imagination and creativity, and takes us
back to an era when we still looked to the stars for inspiration. This is a
car that will stop you dead in your tracks and make you truly long for the
days when chrome was King, gas was a mere .25¢ per gallon, and where Elvis
Presley was the greatest thing the public had ever heard.

1961 Pontiac Catalina Convertible..tri-power
This is my Thanksgiving present to you! What a beautiful car...and a
sleeper too if you just assume it's a "normal" Catalina! This is a
tri-power motor, and it has a 4 speed manual transmission too! If we had
only known at the time what a keeper this is...they would have had to make
a lot more of these! I love those 8 lug wheels...Pontiac was ahead of the
curve in supplying beautiful wheels for their cars!
1964 Pontiac Grand Prix " Sold " Drager's International Classic Sales 206-533-9600
1964 Pontiac Grand Prix. # 894S21574. This is one of those cars I had
to buy and when you see it you will agree. I bought this Grand Prix in
Oregon and it is a one family owned car. I have the original sales invoice
from Vic Bowman Pontiac in Oregon City. It was repainted once and I have a
big stack of receipts. They striped it down and did great job block sanding
so when you look at the photos notice the reflections. I did find a little
bubbling on the lower rear fenders. That and the rear package tray has a
bad spot in the right rear and right rear out side of the bumper has a spot
are about the only flaws you'll find. They are all photoed for you to see.
He did not have the receipts for the engine rebuild but on the rocker cover
is the sticker for the company that rebuilt the engine. Transmission was
rebuilt. This Pontiac has the 8 lug wheels and they are in excellent shape.
It's now serviced and safety checked. I have to tell you it did not need
much. Going over the receipts you can see why it's so nice. They always
changed the oil and kept it right up to date. I have not had a Grand Prix
in a long time. They have to have the best looking interior of most any
car. It's the dash that jumps out at you. Lots of chrome. The out side
lines are great too. They do not build them like this any more. You don't
see a lot of them and none in the condition this one is in. The engine
code 25K tells me it's a 389 cu.in. 303 HP. Engine with automatic
transmission. The S in the VIN tag tells me it was built in South Gate,
California. The 01D tells me it was built January in the 4th week. Trim
code 270 tells me the interior color is Saddle. Paint code S tells me
Saddle Bronze. Notice the 8 lug wheels, they really help set this car off.
I have to say it again, this is one beautiful car. I believe the Grand Prix
has one of the most beautiful dashes ever. Lots of chrome and dials, it
just looks good. Cond. # 2.

FI motor is backed up to its original 4 spd. HYDRA MATIC transmission! She
