    i had the original re-cored and added the a/c shroud, it hasn't been tested much in the heat, so we'll find out this summer.

    The year is 1963, the car belonged to my folks at the time but became mine in '65. Catalina Vista w/ 389 automatic. Drove it for several years during college, but traded for a brand new '69 Nova SS. My bad...

    A few years ago I was at a car show checking out a Pontiac. I was squatting down to examine the 8-lug wheels when the owner told me his dad had designed them. I thought he was pulling my leg until he reached inside and pulled out the original GM design drawings with his dad's signature.

    Jeff K......you got that boat looking sharp. It's nice you can still street it. You still running the StratoFlite Hydro tranny..??
    I would probably be in trouble on the street . I'm thinking of going ProStreet when/if I stop drag racing. Leave the cage and just put mufflers on it tone motor WAY down to pump gas and gear change......and a clutch with a 4 speed!..Time will tell..

    Oh yeah.....I finally put rear disc brakes on mine . I feel much better at shut down area now. Used the Strange race kit...no E brake. Save weight.

    I wish I could keep it but I have way to many projects. This wagon is SO complete. It also has tinted windows. It won't be to long before wagons of this era will be a thing of the past. I guess thats why i own 6 wagons besides this one.

    My grandmother always bought Pontiac Grand Prix cars, until 1968, then she bought a 1968 Plymouth Road Runner! OK, it was an automatic, but she was still a little old lady. And she always had a BOTTLE of Coke in one hand and a cigarette in the other. I remember looking into one of her big Pontiacs as a little kid, and seeing this big gauge on the console; I know now it was a factory tachometer. I don't guess the "little old lady from Pasadena" would have had anything on her. Butch/56sedandelivery.
     
  19. Butch, most of the automatic cars had a vacuum gauge on the console. Most of the stick cars had a tach there.

    The HD and SD 421's were outstanding performers. RIP Pontiac John De Lorean. You left too soon!

    Such a badass 62. One of the coolest I've ever seen!!
     
  23. I suppose this is as good a thread to ask this question as any:

    My uncle has a '63 Bonneville that he bought brand new from a dealer. In fact he special ordered it with 421/4-speed stick and bucket seats. The car has sat for many years now under an old shed and is beginning to develop some rust problems but nothing too serious yet. Is this car cool enough, given as big as it is, to try and convince him to let me pull it out and put it back to its former badass self?

    This weekend I spoke with the 2nd owner of this '64 wagon. He is 89 yrs. young. He sold this car he thought 15 yrs ago but the guy I bought it from said he bought it 5yrs ago. What Mr Mankins told me was this wagon would do at least 80mph. I laughed about that speed. He said he has pics of this car after he bought it. He paid $650.00 on 11-20-1984. I also have a copy of the original title of the original owner. I love documentation aka paper trail. The guy I bought this car from brought it home and let it sit.

  26. rarerodder - That car's way to big to be cool. The 4 speed cars are especially undesirable. I could save you some headaches and take it off your hands for you. Just let me know if you need help....
