Look What I Found!!! Chevvvvvv-RRr-OOOOO-Layyyyyyyy...
Not sure why I didn't make a vid b4 now??? I picked it up Saturday aft,
after driving my '64 Corvair 150 miles towing my dolly. Left the PU at a
friends house 40 miles away, drove the 'Vair ta the Drags, and then towed
the 'Vair back home with the PU.
The tranny stopped shifting into 4th, and discovered the [poor then non
shift was because over 1 gallon of tranny oil missing!!! Any how, it need a
RF ball joint, KN Air filter blocked, etc...

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.

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).
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.
