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.

Ford’s second-generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel now boasts 440 horsepower, up from 400 horsepower, and 860
lb.-ft. of torque, up from 800 lb.-ft., across all Super Duty models from
F-250 to F-450.
The 2015 F-450 tops the F-Series Super Duty pickup truck lineup with
maximum fifth-wheel/gooseneck towing capacity increasing to a class-leading
31,200 pounds, a gain of 6,500 pounds. The truck’s gross combined weight
rating increases to a class-leading 40,000 pounds, a gain of 7,000 pounds.
F-350 increases maximum fifth-wheel/gooseneck towing capacity as well, to
26,700 pounds, from 23,200 pounds, and the gross combined weight rating
goes up 4,500 pounds, to 35,000 pounds.
The improved ratings are a result of designing and engineering the truck as
an integrated system. This approach has enabled Ford engineers to optimize
performance across the full Super Duty lineup.
Ford F-Series Super Duty offers more capability for the new model year,
with engine and chassis upgrades that combine to deliver best-in-class horsepower, torque
and towing capacity, including an improved Power Stroke® V8 turbo diesel engine, stronger F-450 and a revamped
King Ranch model.

Watch the 2015 Ford F-450 6.7L Diesel Super Duty Debut at the State Fair of Texas
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) Ford introduced its 2015 F-Series Super Duty
lineup at the Texas State Fair and the big news is a better Power Stroke V8
turbo diesel engine. They've also beefed
up the F-450 to make it even tougher. The new Power Stroke features a
larger GT37 turbocharger that measures
72.5 millimeters in diameter versus the smaller GT32 it replaces which came
in at 64 millimeters. This means Exhaust gases have a larger surface area to spin
the turbo so you'll get extra power.
