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.
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.

The 1962 Pontiac Grand Prix was one of the first in a long line of GM's "Personal Luxury" cars. Pontiac's answer to the Ford Thunderbird, slotted as a luxury, performance, mid-size car, between the larger Bonneville and the smaller Tempest in the Pontiac lineup. The 1962 Grand Prix was the 1st of the B-body based 1st Generation (1962-1968). The GP was introduced as a lone hardtop model, based on the Catalina platform but available with bigger engines and many more options. The new Grand Prix was at the top of the line and sported a clean style exterior with a sporty and luxurious interior that featured Morrokide-covered bucket seats, a console, floor shift, tachometer, and rear speaker. The classic split-nose featured a fine-mesh grille design, topped with the classic checkered flag badge. The Grand Prix was available with either three or four speed manual transmission in addition to the floor-shift automatic. Overall though, this pre-muscle car was about subtle power, and a rolling, understated class, which it had in spades.
Vanguard Motor Sales is proud and excited to present this extensively restored 1962 Pontiac Grand Prix. You would spend over $60,000 to do this car from scratch. The laser straight, rust-free body is painted stunning Raspberry Pearl. All of the chrome and stainless trim shines like new. The door lips, trunk jamb and all of the margins are beautiful. Take a look at the undercarriage, and you will find the same Raspberry Pearl paint. The trunk is finished in the same high quality paint, with a fresh mat and a spare. Even the trunk light works. This car has been extremely well cared for and it shows.
Take a peek under the hood and you will find the V8 motor. We are not sure if it is a 421 or a 389, as they have the same block ID, but she purrs like a kitten either way. You will also notice how well detailed the engine bay is, and that the fender walls look amazing painted black. The automatic transmission shifts on a dime, and the power steering and power drum brakes keep this GP between the lines. To top off the killer looks of this car, chrome American Racing wheels sit at all four corners (17" front, and 20" rear).
Check out this custom interior! The seats, carpet and headliner are new. There are seatbelts for four. Everything works in this car, including the AM/FM cassette radio, remote mirror, heat and gauges. The center console with floor shifter and mounted tachometer is in perfect working condition. This is a comfortable cruiser that turns heads where ever she goes.
This is one beautifully restored show stopping Grand Prix. You don't see these everyday. This is a Pontiac that you can take to the local show or cruise with pride. Don't wait, call us today! This Raspberry Pearl Pontiac won't last long!

Wow this is one Hot 65 Grand Prix.
This is one of the cleanest GP's I have seen in a long time.
This Grand Prix was owned by an exclusive GM engineer as you can see in the door jam it was signed by him. It came originally with a 389 motor now has one of Pontiac's rarest 421 HO Spec. Order YT Blocks 1 Of 29 Made, with Tri Power. This car runs like a top. The body is straight as and arrow as you can see in the pics and it shifts on the money. Interior is near perfect condition the only thing I could see wrong was the wood laminate curling up on the dash and console. It has the Pontiac 8 lug wheels even the rear speaker in the back seat works. Power antenna, A/C. Paint is impeccable, Chrome is gorgeous this is a true winner no disappointments with this bad boy.
