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.

1962 Pontiac Catalina 421 Super Duty - Gateway Motorsports Park - Huge Wheelie
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV This is a video of an awesome 9 Second, 1962 Pontiac Catalina. This Super Stock Pontiac was racing in the Nostalgia Drags at Gateway Motorsports Park, just outside of St. Louis, MO. It's an original 421 Super Duty car and man do they have it set up right. This thing hooks hard and leaves straight every time. Definitely nothing wrong with a mid 9 second quarter mile at 143 mph. I thought you might get a kick out of that huge wheelie he pulled on the one run. I hope you found it interesting....thanks for watching!

1965 saw a complete restyle of the full sized Pontiac cars. There's no doubt that the Catalina was one of the prettiest! GM really dominated the style department of the automakers in the mid to late 60's after falling behind Ford and Chrysler in the late 1950's. They were clearly dominating again

133093 / 1965 Pontiac Catalina
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/c8mjfot If you're looking for a unique and impressive classic that'll draw big crowds and elicit long stares wherever you go, this Tri-power convertible is your ticket! Despite being delivered to Burnett Pontiac in Cincinnati, Ohio, this awesome Catalina has spent the majority of its 47 years as a resident of the hot and dry south. During the car's recent restoration, all its original rust-free body panels were aligned to better than factory standards and sprayed in a correct coat of GM code N Burgundy Red basecoat/clearcoat. Naturally our skilled restoration staff in Mentor wanted the car to look its absolute best when unveiled; so they color-sanded its burgundy profile to highlight the body's arrow-straight panels, and buffed every inch of its clearcoat into a mirror-like shine. Take a look under this Catalina's long, beaked hood and you'll find a 421 cubic inch Tri-power V8 which was delivered from the factory with an impressive 356 horsepower. Topping the motor is three chrome GTO-style air cleaners which funnel wind into three freshly rebuilt Rochester two-barrel carburetors. The resultant air/fuel mixture passes through a correct cast iron intake manifold to factory-spec internals which are housed in a correctly painted Pontiac Turquoise engine block. At the sides of that block, original heads hang pristine chrome valve covers above reproduction factory-style high output Exhaust manifolds. And at the back of that block, a traditional points distributor shoots sparks into a fresh set of high performance Taylor plug wires. At the front of the car's engine bay a correct radiator, which has been equipped with two quick spinning electric pusher fans, sits under a correct shroud that features a nicely placed "421" emblem. On the left side of the engine bay, you'll find a correct reproduction Delco battery in front hardware for optional power steering and optional power brakes. And on the right side of the engine bay, you'll find an old school GM washer fluid bottle. Underneath this plus sized rag top, a new for 1965 turbo-Hydramatic transmission sends power to a reliable 8.75 inch limited slip rear end that's held off the ground by a newly rebuilt heavy duty suspension. Housed within that suspension is correct optional 'Wonder Touch' power steering, new Monroe rear air shocks and correct optional power brakes which have been updated with new front discs and new ceramic pads. Above that suspension, exceptionally clean floors are covered in a thin coat of undercoating to guard from moisture. And thanks to the recent rebuild, the car is equipped the with a new high torque starter, a solid, painted fuel tank, fresh brake lines and correct factory chalk marks. Exhaust is handled by a new 2.5 inch aluminized system that's fitted with an H-pipe crossover and aggressive turbo mufflers which give the car a deep, vintage sound. And power flows to the pavement through a brand new set of 15 inch Cragar wheels which spin a nice set of 225/70 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around graphite gray spokes. Inside this sunny day road warrior, you'll find a correct code 297 black vinyl interior which is the ideal complement to the car's Burgundy Red exterior paint. The optional custom front and rear bench seats, which feature the first of a complete set of new speakers, have been professionally restored and feel as firm and comfortable as the day they left the factory. Below those seats, fresh black carpet anchors cool Fisher seat belts between heavy duty rubber floor mats and chrome trimmed foot pedals. And in front of those seats a classy dash, which features updated LED backlighting, hangs a horizontal speedometer between a correct factory tachometer, a freshly rebuilt clock, an MP3 compatible Pioneer CD player and Auto Meter Carbon Fiber Ultra-Lite accessory gauges. Connecting the driver to the road is a wood-rimmed steering wheel which spins around a new tilt column and a solid chrome gear selector. And behind the cockpit, a new black convertible boot snaps down above a fully restored trunk which includes a correct mat, a full-size spare tire, a correct jack, a correct jack decal and a functional 'reel-out' courtesy light.
