1962 Pontiac Catalina - Super Special Super-Duty

This '62 Catalina Was Not Only A Motor Trend Test Car, It Might Also Be The First Factory-Built Super-DutyThe Super-Duty Catalina is symbolic of Pontiac's early-'60s dominance of NHRA's dragstrips and NASCAR's high-speed ovals. Super-Duty engine components were initially sold through the Division's dealership parts departments, but the NHRA soon mandated that in order to be eligible for competition in stock classes, complete engines must be factory installed. Pontiac countered by offering the Super-Duty 389 and 421 in its '62 midsized models.
