Who put the cowl plenum air cleaner on it? I did not see it on the car when I looked at it down there. How did you get him to sell it?? I asked him lots of times but he said no. Then I heard he was telling people he wanted 100k for it.

Per Jim Wangers, the motor was a stock, big car 421 HO with a Bobcat kit while the car was with him (new thru 08/64). No headers, cowl plenum, etc.

Been told by others and have read that the cowl plenum and headers were built/installed by Milt, along with present 12.5 to 1, Lunati solid roller 421. Not sure when or in what sequence these items were fitted, exactly.

A 421 HO was fitted at the factory or Royal Pontiac (depends on who you ask).

Well if you ask Jim Wangers, as I had the good fortune to be able to do most recently, the 421 HO swap was, in fact, a factory effort.

Oh, and it spun the #6 rod bearing during testing. Was flat-towed back to Royal by the blue GTO pilot car (which was 348 powered). The blue pilot car was crushed (also a factory effort) shortly upon return. The red car (er, this one), fresh "Bobcatted" 421 HO in place, was given to Jim as his demo. It was never modified beyond this while with Jim.

er, that be 389/348 powered.

And thanks, Ed. Might feel even luckier if I'd invented it, built it or dominated Woodward in it. But that we had an empty spot in our garage for it has me feeling lucky all the same.

Had a fellow ask if there were any other GTO's w/factory fitted 421's. I figured not many, if any - this being the only one I know of. Don't know for sure, though. Anyone aware of any others?

The good folks at Muscle Car Review swung by to shoot some pics for a story they're doing on dealer cars. August issue should hit the stands any 'ol day they say.
