This is one gorgeous but still extremely bad ass car.

Started life as a "delete option" (no options, no heater, exterior mirrors, etc.) 389 Super Duty w'dual quads and a manual T10 4 speed. Originally a California never rusted car.

The fellow I bought the car from did some enhancements. He had what I'm told (and read about) is one of the 3 factory experimental "Nascar" 421 blocks from 1962 built up and put into this car. I'm still trying to get ahold of the shop that built up this engine to find out what exactly is in the short block. I was told it was stroked 1/2" and "built with the best". High compression, needs racing fuel. The heads are proper #s for 62 Super Duties, as are the intake and carbs, harmonic balancer, factory cast aluminum exhaust headers, water neck, deep high capacity oil sump, etc. MSD ignition with different plug in rev limiters. It's a monster of a motor but still fires up easily and boy oh boy, what a sound! Entire drivetrain is fresh with just 6 runs on it. It has a Competition Cams #51-000-9 roller cam in it .

To further enhance this car it also received lightweight fiberglass components: Hood, Trunk lid, Ft Bumper, Center nose, and inner fender wells. Also an alloy grill and a lightweight battery relocated to the trunk. Also has proper drag battery disconnect under the rear bumper.

Two sets of wheels. Aluminum drag/race Centerlines with drag tires (6 runs) and the original steel wheels with street/drag radials.

Body is in great condition, never rusted. Nice and straight. Paint is very nice. Trim ,except ft. bumper, is original and also very nice. Some light patina but it all looks fantastic. The trim on the hood scoop is not attached currently, was removed when dragging (every ounce counts!), but is included.

Interior was largely redone using proper materials and patterns. Dash, gauges, all look good. Speedo not hooked up to the Jerrico trans. Some minor nitpicks, seats could use a good cleaning, which I'll do, but these photos are current.

I also have all of the original sheet metal, ft bumper, front center section, etc. that was removed from the car. It is straight and rust free, but not repainted. I have a proper T10 transmission, driveshaft and rear pumpkin.
I'll admit I'm still on a learning curve about these historic, rare Pontiac Super Duties but I have been reading some very good literature and the data presented backs up the amazing attributes of this car. This is an opportunity not likely ever to be repeated-----I'll answer questions best I can.

Thanks for looking!
