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.

1962 Pontiac Catalina 421 Super Duty - Gateway Motorsports Park - Huge Wheelie
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
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
Gateway Motorsports Park

Mecum Auction Presents - Lot # S117 1961 Pontiac Ventura
Arnie Beswick's 1961 "Passionate Poncho" Ventura still ranks as one of the
most successful Pontiac factory-built racecars of all time. This Bristol
Blue hardtop came from the factory as a 389/348 Tri-Power car with the
Super Duty heads and camshaft shipped in the trunk. Once installed, the horsepower was raised
to 363 horsepower,
a number intentionally underrated by the factory. This is the car that
Beswick drove to the '61 Daytona Winternationals and won with. Arnie went
on to win a large number of Super Stock races throughout the country that
season, solidifying his place as a major player in the Super Stock, A/FX
and Funny Car wars of the 1960s. This car is an exceptional example of the
breed, verified by Mr. Beswick himself. It is finished in the original race
livery and is in its correct 1961 race configuration.

I thought you'd like a look at this really sharp 64 Pontiac Grand Prix.
It's got the big 389 under the hood, a four-speed manual, and the rarely
seen 8 lug wheels. The car is in very original condition with only light
restoration work. All it needs is a good wash and wax and it's ready to
cruise. Thanks for watching and commenting, I appreciate it.

1962 Pontiac Parisienne Convertible on this farm junkyard tour. He explains
how easy it is to miss something like this when you assume a pirated car
will be a sedan. He talks about how you need to look close when you are
hunting for old cars at farmyards. Look for part 1 on YouTube or visit our
