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. - PHS documented - Aluminum front end components including bumper - 1962 record holder at Indy 11.73 in quarter mile - Restoration supervised by original owner & campaigner Howard Maseles - This was the first year that a factory built race car could be purchased right off the assembly line - 4.33 posi-traction - Super Duty brakes, motor, & Exhaust - Original cloth interior

1962 Pontiac Grand Prix Classic Muscle Car for Sale in MI Vanguard Motor Sales
http://www.ClassicCarBuyingSecrets.com Click now for an instant download on "How to Avoid the 7 Deadliest Mistakes of Buying a Classic Car Online"! The 1962 Pontiac Grand Prix was one of the first in a long line of GM's "Personal Luxury" cars. Pontiac's answer to the Ford Thunderbird, slotted as a luxury, performance, mid-size car, between the larger Bonneville and the smaller Tempest in the Pontiac lineup. The 1962 Grand Prix was the 1st of the B-body based 1st Generation (1962-1968). The GP was introduced as a lone hardtop model, based on the Catalina platform but available with bigger engines and many more options. The new Grand Prix was at the top of the line and sported a clean style exterior with a sporty and luxurious interior that featured Morrokide-covered bucket seats, a console, floor shift, tachometer, and rear speaker. The classic split-nose featured a fine-mesh grille design, topped with the classic checkered flag badge. The Grand Prix was available with either three or four speed manual transmission in addition to the floor-shift automatic. Overall though, this pre-muscle car was about subtle power, and a rolling, understated class, which it had in spades. Vanguard Motor Sales is proud and excited to present this extensively restored 1962 Pontiac Grand Prix. You would spend over $60,000 to do this car from scratch. The laser straight, rust-free body is painted stunning Raspberry Pearl. All of the chrome and stainless trim shines like new. The door lips, trunk jamb and all of the margins are beautiful. Take a look at the undercarriage, and you will find the same Raspberry Pearl paint. The trunk is finished in the same high quality paint, with a fresh mat and a spare. Even the trunk light works. This car has been extremely well cared for and it shows. Take a peek under the hood and you will find the V8 motor. We are not sure if it is a 421 or a 389, as they have the same block ID, but she purrs like a kitten either way. You will also notice how well detailed the engine bay is, and that the fender walls look amazing painted black. The automatic transmission shifts on a dime, and the power steering and power drum brakes keep this GP between the lines. To top off the killer looks of this car, chrome American Racing wheels sit at all four corners (17" front, and 20" rear). Check out this custom interior! The seats, carpet and headliner are new. There are seatbelts for four. Everything works in this car, including the AM/FM cassette radio, remote mirror, heat and gauges. The center console with floor shifter and mounted tachometer is in perfect working condition. This is a comfortable cruiser that turns heads where ever she goes. This is one beautifully restored show stopping Grand Prix. You don't see these everyday. This is a Pontiac that you can take to the local show or cruise with pride. Don't wait, call us today! This Raspberry Pearl Pontiac won't last long! 248-974-9513 www.vanguardmotorsales.com
