Default First peek since 1980’s. 62’ Pontiac 455 tri-power.

1962 Pontiac Catalina 2 Door Sedan ...not the “new for 62”hardtop. Purchased car (already restored/modified) in Carlisle swap meet...mid 80s, bought it with a 389 tri-power/4 speed but originally a 4bbl car. Currently...the original 389 bored and stroked to 455 cubes by R&L Engines in Dover NH...new Edelbrock aluminum heads...65 tri-power intake and correct restored carbs. (65 intake was necessary to fit the new heads). New (reproduction ) cast iron, long branch exhaust manifolds...were basically cast iron headers used by Pontiac back in the day...dual exhaust with electric cutouts for 62 Catalina. “62" borg Warner 4 speed...new Centerforce clutch and 4:56 safety track rear-end 9.3” very nice Original factory inter but No tinted glass. 14" 8 lug wheels/ Aluminum brake drum. (The rear wheels were modified/fabricated to 15" and are running real cheater slicks) manual brakes Car probably has 100 miles since work was done 6-7 years ago Underside of this car is incredibly clean. Paint done back in the 80s but very nice (detailed by Danny Bowdoin). Runs very strong...needs nothing.

Will sell for 65k firm. Located in Maine.

Yes Dave, most purchased in the late 70’s - mid 80’s and only recently being shown. (Just went under contract on the L79).
