    I dont know why pontiacs arent more popular in HAMB type cars. They looked pretty much the same till the end of their life so there are lots of cores available, were reasonably popular in the early sixties, and there is a fair amount of period parts floating around without the demand that is there for the olds and hemi stuff.

    i agree; i think for me it's unfamiliarity and fear (although the distributor and carb are identical to chevy for the most part. Although the dist turns in the opposite direction i think....)

    Also, accessability/availability "seems" less. But i'm not looking very hard either......



    Pontiac rocks. How to resurrect the division?

    This is how I found the HAMB, searching for info on pontiac engines, there is a thread on here with a ton of invaluable information about the pontiac v8 from it's birth to it's demise in 79-80....

    anybody have any pics of M/T's blown quarter 389(the tempest 4cyl split in half)
     
  18. Mr. Boeing Bomber, I thought putting a blower on a 195 Trophy would make the thing shake itself to pieces. Thought I suppose the low compression ratio on the low end versions would be ideal for a blower.

    As for the relative rarity of Pontiac V8's I was always told that the Chevy V8 was the first widely available OHC V8. I also heard that it is easer to fit into a thirties Ford, something about the oil pan. After the SBC got established I figured it was just tradition and familiarity.

    The Purple People eater has a mid 50's Poncho and it's punched out to like 450CI or so. Crazy..

    Pontiac distributors are unique and do not interchange with chevs. The Pontiac design is much nicer for work with. You can pull the intake and heads on the Pontiac and not have to pull the dist and mess with the timing. Plus, the Pontiac dist is much shorter, easier to r and r. One of the many superior design features of the Great Pontiac V8!
     
  21. That's a nice little deal the you have and should be proud of it but, 'top this'?


    1. '59 389 bored (.315") and stroked (1.050") to 577", deck raised 2", 8.25" Crower billet rods & crank, 6 bolt billet custom main girdle, 14-71 blower, custom blower drive. to be fair, it is still a mock up.

    [​IMG]


    2. '60 389 + .060" to 399" 6 bolt main lower end girdle, as above, custom heads, snout support, blower and fuel pump drive. 6-71 Mooneyham, Enderle injectors, Mallory mag, runs on 96% nitro. Has gone over 200 in the quarter on a partial pass., 6.7ET with a lot more in it.

    3. '62 Original Mickey Thompson HEMI Pontiac- blown, Hilborn injected, alum heads, magnesium intake and front cover. currently displaces 421" with 3" main #990 Sd crank, Crower billet rods, Engle cam.

    I've posted this before, Mickey Thompson's Tempest 4. I have an old '61 Hotrod Mag. and Mickey advertised in it selling this set up (manifold and blower kits). How cool was that?

    No pictures, but if you got the latest GoodGuys Magazine, there's a 463 Pontiac, with 6 Strombergs in that green '49 Merc, that won best Custom in Charlotte.

    This is the engine bay of my '73 Trans Am that is now owned by a gentleman in Delaware.

    Also, a link to a site with some info on it. Most of the info was from my time building the car.
    The new owner is building a road race/pro touring car out of it and doing a great job.

    Not to mention the intake is raised off the oil valley. We have Performance Air Gap from the Factory! :D

    Also Steve, did you see the sign on that Hemi? I think you can go scratch that one off the books now.

    Got a '60 389 that I plan to build and stick in my '55 2 Dr Post, as soon as I get my Altered on the track. If you been to the HAMB, you've probably seen the green and white '55.
