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.
